How Our Mission Translates to our Work
Ally Squared is a youth-led nonprofit that challenges performance in allyship and transforms it into actions that prioritize lived experiences, amplify the power of communities that fight systems of power and privilege, decolonize institutions and procedures, and advocate for intersectional practices. Our work is based on lived experiences and is action-oriented and impact-focused. We encourage active- allyship- both in the sense of being there for others but also for yourself.
Ally Squared recognizes that we are working and residing on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin, Anishinabek territory. We also acknowledge that recognizing this is only the beginning to our decolonizing journey.
Through our work to navigate the positive and negative consequences of speaking up in real-life situations, we envision a world where people know how to practice allyship and are prepared to do so. We see a world full of empowered people who are their own allies as well as allies for others.
At Ally Squared, we value
honesty in acknowledging the
lived realities around us,
compassion in how we interactwith each other,solidarity with our communities, and
connectivity with the network of allies around the globe.
