  • An ally is typically a member of advantaged social groups who uses social power to take a stand against social injustice directed at targeted groups.

  • An ally works to be an agent of social change rather than an agent of oppression.

Activity image theater

Activity: Image Theater

  • Groups of 3-5

  • Discuss with your group an event or situation around ableism that you will focus on.

  • Create a “talking picture” with your group, in which each person poses as they are able, to create a small scene that relates the situation you chose.

Activity Cont’d

  • In addition to the pose you choose, each person will create one word or phrase that describes how their character is feeling

  • A facilitator will tap on each person’s shoulder (one at a time), and the person who is being tapped will repeat their word or phrase

    Note: if you are uncomfortable being touched please let one of us know once you are in your small group
