i Got Privilege: What Can i Do?



Many have privilege in one form or another: skin color, sex, religion, ability, and/or sexual orientation. This session will define and discuss examples of privilege drawing from Allan Johnson’s work on systems of privilege and how those systems work, specifically white privilege. By understanding advantage and disadvantage built into a system, we can find ways to alter unequal systems toward social justice and equity. Discussion of strategies for disrupting systems and their obstacles will be encouraged.
