Authentic Allyship Project is a collaboration between Indigenous scholar Andrea Menard and non-Indigenous ally Marc Bhalla that was born in academia and has real world, practical aspirations.
Andrea and Marc apply professional and life experiences to identify practical steps in support of the acknowledgement truth and the goal of reconciliation.
Andrea and Marc have joined forces on a number of projects to help aspiring allies better understand the truth, appreciate Indigenous world views and consider how they can support Indigenous Communities.
Institutions that the Authentic Allyship Project has developed curricula and presented for include:
Canadian Bar Association
Osgoode Hall Law School
York University School of Continuing Studies
