You can support...
Have you ever heard of the term "Allyship"?
Allyship means to become an ally, to take action and support those affected by discrimination.
You can be an ally by...
- look & act actively - in the sense of the person affected.
- listen to & follow discriminated people on social media.
- inform yourself - about discrimination and terminology.
- give affected people space & keep your perspective in the background.
- donate time or money to disadvantaged communities.
- talk to your friends and learn together.
- address a grievance & intervene.
- confront your privileges.
For terms related to awareness, here is a glossary.
You can intervene...
If you observe a scene that seems strange to you, you can help with the 5 Ds:
Important: Always consider your own limits and those of others.
If you observe a situation that seems wrong or you feel that another person is not doing well, check your own capacity to intervene or support. If you feel unable to do so, be sure to tell another person.
If you decide to intervene, talk directly to the person involved and ask if she needs your support. If she does not want it, respect that. If she does need your support, ask her what would help her.
