Privilege

During this time there has been a lot of discussion about “privilege”.

 

Everyone has privilege, some more or less than others, but we think it’s important to start here because it is this privilege, earned or unearned, that allows for oppression and disadvantages to exist, covertly or overtly. We’ve concluded that it is the recognition of privilege that allows us to take the next step and change other social oppressions, beginning with our own biases.

 

Here are some organizations and articles that introduce learning about privilege. We found them helpful and hope you do, too.

Organizations:
