YouthVote Training: Privilege Walk hosted by JACL and APIAVote

August 12
10AM - 12 Noon
Florentine I

The Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) National Youth/Student Council (NY/SC) is a team of students and young professionals representing JACL youth members at the national and district levels of the organization. The mission of the NY/SC is to raise awareness of AAPI issues and develop young leaders who create positive change in our community and other marginalized communities.

The NY/SC will be organizing an identity-based workshop called the “Privilege Walk.” In this activity, participants begin by either forming a circle or a line. Statements regarding the identities and backgrounds of the participants are read out loud and if the statement applies to a participant, the participant is asked to step forward or backward. At the conclusion of the exercise, moderators will ask discussion questions about the final formation of the participants. This activity encourages participants to examine how their personal experiences intersect with larger social systems and how these systems can affect communities.
