Allyship is a process, and we all have more to learn, it is an ongoing and lifelong process that involves a lot of work. Our goal is to not just support ideas but to actively but confront racism as it comes up daily,  deconstruct it institutionally and live in a way that challenges systemic oppression, at the risk of experiencing some of that oppression.  Being an ally entails building diverse relationships with diverse races in order to challenge them in their thinking about race, gender, ethnicity.
