Giving Up Privilege Virtual Workshop

GIVING UP PRIVILEGE: How "White Privilege" Keeps White Supremacy in Place

Tuesday, November 7 - Thursday, November 9, 2023

10:00 am – 1:00 pm Pacific Each Day

Check Your Time Zone Here


Since Peggy McIntosh introduced the "invisible knapsack of white privilege” into the racial justice lexicon, it has become a way to describe White people's relationship to unearned power as well as a catchall phrase for experiences which are not privilege at all. The misunderstanding and misuse of "privilege" sows separation, breeds guilt and defensiveness, and maintains White dominance. In our 2023 Fall Healing Together Series, you will learn to differentiate between three distinct phenomena that have been lumped into “White Privilege”: 1) Human Rights, 2) Systemic Obliviousness, and, 3) Entitlement. We will understand how “benefit” and “advantage” narratives of “privilege” undermine solidarity, reinforce White supremacy, encourage assimilation, and perpetuate paternalism. We will also explore how “privilege” denies the costs to White people as non-targets of racism: loss of humanity, connection, culture, and belonging.


  • Understood how the “White Privilege" narrative encourages assimilation, breeds guilt and defensiveness, and keeps White supremacy and systemic racism in place

  • Recognized and named patterns of internalized dominance and entitlement, systemic, non-target obliviousness, and human rights as distinct concepts
  • Shifted from experiencing non-target identity as one of “privilege” to one of “loss” as we recognize the costs of oppression to and as non-targets
  • Experienced the power of healing in community using LJIST’s core listening practice
  • Deepened our understanding of LJIST’s core theory of social transformation and its application to ending racism
  • Attend the workshop in its entirety: all three hours on all three days of the workshop. 
  • Complete approximately 2-3 hours of pre-work: watching short videos, reviewing handouts, completing reflections, printing or downloading workshop worksheets. This pre-work will be shared no later than 10 days before the workshop begins. 
  • Complete approximately 30 minutes of homework on the first and second days of the workshop.
  • Cameras On: LJIST requires that participants have camera and microphone capabilities to attend LJIST virtual sessions. We will build an intimate space together and having our videos on builds trust and allows participants to be vulnerable with one another and the LJIST team.
  • Private Space: We ask all participants to come prepared to mutually hold the confidentiality of what will be shared in our session together. We ask participants to not be driving or in shared spaces with people not registered for the session except in the case of emergencies. We also ask that you do not share the Zoom link with others.
  • Agree to our LJIST Limited Media and Liability Waiver in the registration form. 
  • OPTIONAL: Complete the Highly Recommended Pre-Requisite (if you haven't before): Attend the 3-Hour Getting Listened To session on Wednesday, October 4, 2023 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm Pacific. (Free with your registration!)

Register by Thursday, October 26, 2023. Registration is limited to 32 people.

Refunds will not be given for this workshop, but registration can be transferred to another participant until Thursday, November 2, 2023.

*Discounts are available to groups of 4 or more participants registering from the same organization. Contact Lara Simonetti at [email protected] for more information.
