Be the best ally! How to support and stand up for the communities you love: A YP Summit recap

Written by Katie Fourney    on April 21, 2020    in
NOTE: This blog was written prior to the COVID-19 pandemic reaching the Midwest. While we at SHARE Omaha worked to respond to coronavirus needs, this recap of an important Young Professional Summit session was put on hold. Although March 13th YP Summit feels as if it occurred in another lifetime, the message shared during the ‘Be the best ally!’ session is relevant now. When we begin to leave our homes again, we have an opportunity to declare anew who we want to be as community members. We can be allies in action.

Are you an ally? Are you the best possible ally? Have no clue what an “ally” is? (That’s okay! Let’s listen together.)

At the Greater Omaha Chamber’s Young Professional Summit, Erik Servellon of the Tri-Faith Initiative moderated a powerful panel that explained terminology, debunked myths and provided the framework needed to be the best ally to diverse communities.

You're invited to celebrate SHARE Omaha's birthday with us! We'd say no gifts, but...  volunteer, donate (use donation code BIRTHDAY) or send a special item to one of 405 local nonprofits. Your generosity is the best gift!

Just 365 days ago, SHAREomaha.org went live. And these past 52 weeks, you've done GOOD!

Givers from across the metro discovered new nonprofits that serve important causes and connected in meaningful ways. You've served thousands of volunteer hours, attended important events, shared your funds and gifted items nonprofits need to do their work. Thank you for using SHAREomaha.org as a resource to find your fit and do good!

    SHAREomaha.org has been live for six months!  I was about to say “just” six months or “only” – both would be appropriate. “Just six months” meaning that for us on the team it has been an immersive experience so chock full of opportunities for the community that it feels like so much longer. The public and our nonprofit sector have both welcomed SHARE Omaha as a resource with enthusiasm, ideas and open arms. I have often called it the best whirlwind ever.
