Backlash

There are folks who have been working in this space for a long time. Below we have links to articles, podcasts, videos and more that have been helpful to us as we explore our own privilege and bias.

 

Privilege and bias can be a difficult place to explore, particularly for people with some privilege they haven't been very in touch with before. The key here is to really notice if you are having a defensive reaction and instead of being ashamed of that or shutting down to what is making you defensive, consider that what is making you defensive has a lot of information to give you. If you take a little space and practice some de-escalation, you might find information under the defensiveness that could use some detangling.   

 

This is also a place where a lot of people get really stuck. Notice if you are getting stuck and see whether moving to other sections and coming back to this will help you.
