Have you heard the phrase, “check your privilege” and wondered what it meant? Do you have trouble articulating your questions and ideas about privilege and oppression? Do you want to understand your own privilege? Turning Privilege Into Change is designed to engage participants in critical thinking, dialogue and activities regarding our own layers of privilege in relation to the world around us. In this workshop, we will use exercises and discussions to understand new vocabulary, different forms of privilege and oppression, intersectionality, and how we can begin Phase I: Awareness of becoming an active-ally and creating change.
- Participants will be able to articulate different forms of privilege.
- Participants will explore intersectionality while engaging dialogue, critical thinking, and discussion of multiple identities.
- Participants will become familiar with the active-ally model and develop an understanding of their personal connection with Phase I.
