“Understanding & Challenging Privilege: One Ally at a Time ” brings the National White Privilege Conference’s acclaimed, robust model of engagement, action and accountability, to Cape Cod for the first time.

The symposium will provide a unique opportunity for the Cape Cod community – from high school and college students, teachers, university faculty and higher education professionals, to non-profit staff, community leaders and activists, social workers and counselors, healthcare workers, and members of the spiritual community and corporate arena – to examine diversity, power, privilege, leadership and oppression.  Workshops and keynote speakers will offer practical tips, tools and strategies for combating systemic inequities through educational and action-oriented programming.

Speakers will include:

  • Jackie Battalora, author of Birth of a White Nation: The Invention of White People and Its Relevance Today
  • Chuck Collins, Director of the Program on Inequality and the Common Good at the Institute for Policy Studies
  • Debby Irving, racial justice educator and author of Waking Up White
  • Peggy McIntosh, feminist, anti-racism activist, and Senior Research Associate at the Wellesley Centers for Women.
  • Eddie Moore, Jr., founder of America & MOORE, LLC, a leading provider of comprehensive diversity, privilege and leadership trainings and workshops; and
  • Jasiri X, rapper and activist.
Registration for both Friday and Saturday. Saturday lunch included.
