Creating community or institutional change is long, hard work. Rarely is it ever addressed successfully by a single person. Join Fernando Burga, assistant professor at University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs, and Eriks Dunens, statewide Extension educator for leadership and civic engagement, as they share what the research suggests about building alliances to achieve the impacts we wish to have.
Focusing on racial equity, the presenters will explore the benefits and challenges that are inherent in building alliances within this context. The session examines questions such as "How can we cultivate allies?," "What makes for an effective ally?," and "What do I do when allies aren't helping?"
