The English term allyship does not yet have an equivalent in German. Most likely, it would be understood as solidarity and solidarity of a person from the majority society, who shows as an ally with marginalized groups (including those affected by racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, ageism, Ableism), who experience (structural) discrimination. The*ally advocates for equality and diversity.

Allyship may include, for example, fighting prejudice (publicly and/or privately) or changing personal language use to make it more inclusive. This may include using the term People of Color as a self-designation for people who are not read as white, or using and capitalizing Black. As author Roxane Gay said in a 2016 interview, “We need people to stand up and see the problems of oppression as their own, without distance. We need people who do this even though they can’t fully understand what it means to be oppressed for origin or ethnicity, gender, ability, class, religion, or any other marker of identity.”
