The mission of the Social Justice Ally Training program is to educate members of the Florida State community about issues related to social justice in order to develop allies who will promote an equitable and inclusive environment and serve as social change agents in a diverse and global society.
Social Justice Allies will determine effective strategies related to combating social justice issues by:
- Developing an awareness:
- of key concepts related to social justice, diversity, and oppression
- of social justice issues, including racism, classism, religious oppression, sexism, heterosexism, gender oppression, abelism, ageism and adultism, and xenophobia;
- of how systems of oppression have impact U.S history
- Developing knowledge of self and others by:
- recognizing how the Cycle of Socialization has contributed to our understanding and beliefs associated with various social issues
- being aware of social group membership and Identifying dominant and subordinated identities
- Using action towards becoming a social justice ally by:
- understanding that social justice is a goal and a process
- demonstrating an understanding of ally identity development
- displaying a commitment towards continuing education related to ally identity development
- Holding self-accountable for conscious and unconscious behaviors that harm target group members
