Allies. Supporters. Helpers. People who work with you in alliance, to aid your interests. No doubt they’re important. Alliance is what gives us the numbers we need to fight back against systemic oppression. We can’t go it alone, obviously, so we recruit people to the cause. Alliance is not just giving lip service.
