Lillian Medville: Social Justice Is Personal


Sunday, July 30, 2017 (All day)

Your Privilege Is Showing is a facilitated social justice card game focusing on sexism, racism, and privilege. The fundamental philosophy of YPIS is that systems of oppression (sexism, racism, privilege, ableism, classism, among others) are both deeply personal and universal. We have all, no matter who we are, internalized and participated these systems, and are hurt by them in some way. But we don’t talk about them. And if we can't talk about them we can't even begin to understand our part in them. Lillian Medville is the creator and facilitator of Your Privilege is Showing. She has brought the game to MIT Media Lab, Harvard Graduate School of Ed, The Humanist Hub, Berklee College of Music, SXSWedu in March 2017, and is currently working on a documentary film about the Berklee College Pilot program that took place fall 2016. Join us for a special event at the Humanist Hub, where you'll learn more about the game, the founding principles behind it, and get the chance to play.
