Lynn Gehl has created an Ally Bill of Responsibilities beginning with the two points below. Follow the link to read the full 2-page Bill of Responsibilities. PDF files are also available for your use.
- Do not act out of guilt, but rather out of a genuine interest in challenging the larger oppressive power structures.
- Understand that they are secondary to the Indigenous people that they are working with and that they seek to serve. They and their needs must take a back seat.
“In creating a better world the turtle must to lead the way. Genuine solidarity, rather than false solidarity, is required. No one is free until those people most oppressed are free.”
