A college campus is a perfect place for students and others to learn to respect and stand up for those who face inequality. The important work of an ally (such as heterosexual ally, white ally, able-bodied ally, etc.) is to help reduce such disparity, even though they don’t experience it themselves.

This interactive lecture will help the college community become better allies by understanding the best ways to support those who experience prejudice and discrimination. Kim A. Case, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of Houston at Clear Lake, will address how students and others can become the best allies possible.

Case received the Innovative Teaching Award in recognition of her student project on public education and intersecting social identities by the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues in 2013.
