White Privilege Conference – WPC23
Event Date: Wednesday, March 9, 2022 -through Saturday, March 12, 2022
Event Time: All day
The White Privilege Conference (WPC) was established and is organized by African American Professor Dr. Eddie Moore, who wanted to provide a challenging, collaborative and comprehensive experience. The conference strives to empower and equip individuals to work for equity and justice through self and social transformation.
The annual WPC serves as an opportunity to examine and explore difficult issues related to white privilege, white supremacy, and oppression. WPC provides a forum for critical discussions about diversity, multicultural education and leadership, social justice, race/racism, sexual orientation, gender relations, religion and other systems of privilege/oppression.
Since 2011, FGC has sponsored a group discount for the White Privilege Conference. At least 40 Quakers have attended each year, and in 2016 more than 400 Friends attended with the FGC discount. In 2016, FGC and local Friends provided a space at the conference for Quaker worship and worship sharing daily. In addition, local Friends provided overnight hospitality to out-of-state participants, as well as arranged carpools to and from the hotel each day.
