Let’s Talk About Privilege
September 9 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Let’s Talk about Privilege
Privilege is a special right or advantage available to a particular person or group. Having privilege does not mean that someone has not experienced hardships, but it does mean having unearned benefits received by nature of one’s identity. Identities including but not limited to sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, language, ability, and yes race. Privilege is a tricky subject to talk about. Thinking about privilege and challenging it is an ongoing exercise. Let’s talk about it.
