Dear White Women

Jun 21, 2022

White people, you keep asking us what you can DO differently to be more anti-racist.  So this summer, we’re answering that question in bite-sized ways.  This isn’t a checklist; this is simply a primer.  If you want more, go buy our book, Dear White Women: Let’s Get (Un)comfortable Talking About Racism.

Today, we’re talking about what the real differences are between performative allyship and real allyship.  What does it take to actually be an ally, as opposed to just calling yourself one?  Listen in and share this episode with a friend you think might be able to talk with you about all of this!  


What to listen for: 

  • What performative allyship looks like, especially when it comes to social media
  • How to be a better White friend
  • What you need to DO to be a real ally (key word being DO), and concrete ways that you can make change in your own spheres of influence
