Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible
Oct 08 2016 09:00 AM
740 N. Calvert Street
Baltimore, MD 21202

Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible is a unique breakthrough workshop that combines film with a guided conversation to educate and raise awareness on the issue of white privilege. Offered by the St. Ignatius Racial Justice Forum and the Justice and Peace Racial Justice Subcommittee on Saturday, October 8 from 9AM-Noon, this workshop will bridge the gap between good intentions and meaningful change by creating a space for white people to find their voice and reflect on their own experience and understanding. 

The film demonstrates what is often required to move through the stages of denial, defensiveness, guilt, and shame before being able to commit fully to undoing race-based oppression by featuring stories from white men and women on overcoming unconscious racism and entitlement. This essential but often missing piece in social justice and cultural competency work has been used by over 1,000 govern-mental agencies, universities, and faith-based institutions, and we are excited to now offer it to you. This workshop will be facilitated by Joan Sattler Ed.D, Associate Professor of Education at Notre Dame University of Maryland. While the event is free, reservations are required. To reserve your spot, go to
