Walk with a Purpose
Students who attend the White Privilege Conference lead our Walk With A Purpose program, where they share their personal reflections from the conference and organize a keynote speaker. During last year's 4th annual program, keynote Ariel Luckey invited each of us to grapple with who we are, what we stand for and who we stand with. This dynamic presentation, part keynote, part theater performance, explored power, privilege, and identity from individual and collective perspectives.
