Event Details

The fundamental philosophy of YPIS is that systems of oppression (sexism, racism, privilege, ableism, classism, among others) are both deeply personal and universal. We have all, no matter who we are, internalized and participated these systems, and are hurt by them in some way. But we don’t talk about them. And if we can’t talk about them we can’t even begin to understand our part in them.

Lillian Medville is the creator and facilitator of Your Privilege is Showing. She developed this unique experience-based card game that allows for conversations about privilege and social justice through her own personal evolution with understanding culture and power. She has brought the game to MIT Media Lab, Harvard School of Ed, The Humanist Hub, Berklee College of Music, SXSWedu in March 2017, and is currently working on a documentary film about the Berklee College Pilot program that took place fall 2016. Lillian is creative and honest in her approach to doing what works through art. She works on projects related to social justice, bravery, and permission to be exactly who you are.
