Notes on Allyship

To be an ally remind yourself:

You are not the only smart person in the room.
You don’t always know what you don’t know.
You don’t define the needs of others.

You don’t own my identity, my mind, my body, my hair, my creativity, my culture, my path, my destiny, my purpose, my morality, my capability, nor the heights to which I can rise.
