White Privilege Conference 2011
April 13-16, 2011
Sheraton Bloomington Hotel, Minneapolis
The national White Privilege Conference  (WPC) is coming to Minneapolis! WPC serves as an annual opportunity to examine and explore issues of white privilege, social justice, race/racism, sexual orientation, gender relations, and other systems of privilege/oppression. It provides participants the opportunity to get honest about the type of culture in which we live, and the advantages that accrue to some but not others. Through workshops, keynotes, films and community-building opportunities, the WPC offers a means to develop and sustain ongoing work to dismantle this system of white privilege, white supremacy, and oppression. For more information, visit the  White Privilege Conference website or contact wpc12info@gmail.com. Hosted by the Minnesota Justice Collaborative and sponsored by the GLBTA Programs Office.
