Use privilege to give a voice to others

Isabelle Norconk,
San Diego, CA.

As a white woman, I don’t experience the struggle and discrimination that other men and women of minority groups feel. That’s not to say I have no problems, they just don’t have to do with systemic racism and racial stereotypes. Something I can do to combat this and to add my support to others that can help themselves is to add my privilege to an organization so that they can impress upon me their wishes and I can do my best to support, listen, and spread their cause. Like Black Lives matter, Black Student Union, LGBTQIAS+, or Standing Rock.
