I was asked to do a tweet on how to be a good Minceir Ally. So here are my thoughts ... Other Minceiri are welcome to add.
Allies can do the actions you can.

Learn about Traveller Culture, history and issues affecting us from us not others. You can do this by checking Traveller org websites, chat with us, invite us to give inputs in your place of work.
Educate others and challenge Anti Traveller racism when you see it.
Get to know Travellers locally and local issues. Support the work of local and national Traveller orgs.
Get to know Travellers locally becoming friends. Invite Traveller children to your parties/playdates. Let your children go to Traveller children parties,playdates in their home.
Actively employ Travellers or create training ,apprenticeship targeting Travellers.
Establish local homework clubs supporting Traveller parents to support their children in education.
Support Traveller parents to be on school boards of management, committees.
Support Travellers entering politics.
Never speak for us without us. Ensure Travellers are leading our struggle.
Support and share our voices to be heard as far as possible.
