allyship (v.) is an active and consistent practice of unlearning and re-evaluating beliefs and actions, in which a person seeks to work in solidarity with a marginalized individual or group of people
Message From President Andy Hamilton:
What is Ally Week?
At a large urban institution with hundreds of micro-communities, it is often challenging to foster meaningful cross-cultural interactions. NYU Ally Week creates opportunities for students, faculty, and administrators to deepen their understanding of the experiences of others, and raise awareness of the individual and collective injustices that confront many in our society.
Working from an intersectional and intercultural understanding of oppression, the entire campus community will be challenged to examine stereotypes and prejudice through events, a photo campaign, pledge stations, and social media!
