Invitation: EDU 280’s Privilege Walk

UMF Privilege WalkElementary Education Practicum Block 1 would like to invite you to their Privilege Walk event!

UMF‘s EDU 280 Diversity and Social Justice class is hosting a privilege walk. A privilege walk, for those who don’t know, is an event that illustrates the differences in privilege among members of a community. Participants will be asked questions that draw upon their level of privilege. At the end of each session, participants will see their position in comparison with others and what it means in relation to privilege.

Privilege walks can be emotional events, which is why there will be a counselor available to speak with anyone in need.

There will be 6 sessions held in Dearborn Gymnasium. Sessions start at 11:30 with each session lasting 20 minutes:

Session 1: 11:30 – 11:50
Session 2: 11:50 – 12:10
Session 3: 12:10 – 12:30
Session 4: 12:30 – 12:50
Session 5: 12:50 – 1:10
Session 6: 1:10 – 1:30

Sessions have a maximum capacity of 40 people. If a session is full upon arrival, we encourage people to wait for the next session to begin.

We encourage students, faculty, and community members to participate in this event to broaden privilege awareness in the community.

**If you require any sort of accommodation for this event, please contact one of the hosts of this Facebook page and we will do our best to accommodate you**
