HANDOUT 1: Dismantling Privilege

Steps for Dismantling Privilege

  • NAME IT!—Grapple with understanding what privilege is and how it works in everyday life.
  • DEAL WITH IT!—When you identify privilege, address it, and take some personal responsibility for not allowing it to continue.
  • REFRAME IT!—Build new roles, practices, shared values, and relationships with others to counteract privilege.

Questions to Consider

  • Who is advantaged/privileged?
  • How do I contribute to this form of privilege?
  • What are some new roles or practices that would not allow this manifestation of privilege to continue?
  • What are the risks for each person/group in your proposed new scheme of things? What are the benefits?
