Program Description

Program Details

Come to this workshop to learn what privilege is, what it isn't, why it matters, and what we can do to make a difference. Erin Pederson, licensed psychologist, will present information about privilege from a social justice lens and clarify an often misunderstood part of the problem. Discussion and self-reflection activities will be used to explore aspects of privilege, how it impacts our communities, and ways we as individuals can make a positive difference.

Provided in partnership with Ames Public Library, Ames Progressive Alliance, and Inclusive Ames.
