Digging Deep: Thinking about Privilege with Eli Clare

How do we make the space to talk honestly about all the multi-layered systems of injustice that target some of us and privilege others for who we are?  The layers are so tangled: gender folds into disability, disability wraps around class, class strains against race, race snarls into sexuality, sexuality hangs onto gender, all of it finally piling into our bodies.  Most of have stories of both oppression and privilege. Join Eli Clare as he uses storytelling and critical thinking to name and explore upon the dynamics and conundrums of privilege in our lives. http://eliclare.com

We look forward to seeing you on Feb. 25!
