From Privilege to Advocacy: Translating Advantages into Action

Wednesday, February 15, 2017
4PM
Levine-Ross Room, Hassenfeld Conference Center, Brandeis University

Speakers:
Madeleine Lopez, Director of the Intercultural Center
Atticus Ranck, Coordinator, Sexuality and Gender Diversity

Description:
Privileges are manifested in different ways, some noticeable while others require a closer look. Come join us as we take stock of our privileges and ways to put them into action. Madeleine Lopez will discuss how her education affords her a level of privilege, which allows her to advocate for students and the undocumented. Atticus Ranck, who has has spent the past few years as an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, will discuss the gender-based privilege of which he is acutely aware.

Join us for a vibrant discussion…and some dessert!
