Unleash the Power of our Differences Series

Exploring My Power and Privilege

The series continues with an exploration of your vision and purpose and how to live in solidarity across differences with others.

Join presenter, Elliott Butler-Cisneros for another powerful workshop in the Unleash the Power of Our Differences series. In this workshop, you will explore personal power and privilege, and strategize ways to work with both within a community and your life.

In this session you will:

  • Examine the ways you have power and privilege, and the ways you do not.
  • Explore internal dynamics and payoffs of maintaining power and privilege.
  • Uncover the impacts of unexamined power and privilege on community, relationships, and systems generally.
  • Strategize the transformation of power and privilege from a poison to a balm.

Workshop Presenter

Elliott Butler-Cisneros

Elliott comes from a bi-cultural, multi-racial background. He taught in special education on the Navajo reservation and directed a transition program serving students with disabilities. He worked as an administrator at predominantly Latino elementary and an experiential school in Colorado. He taught multicultural classes at Naropa University and directed the Human Rights Office for the City of Fort Collins.

In 2006, Elliott founded The Sum and moved to Charlottesville, VA after the Unite the Right Rally in 2017 to support the communities’ cross-racial process. With The Sum, he has developed the Power of Difference Model, Assessment and Certification; Solidarity Circles and Protocols; and the Welcome Circle–a faith community that gathers in the sacredness of welcome itself.

I am constantly impressed by the down-to-earth practicality of the FIC workshops combined with the philosophical questions that are so vital for us to explore. I’m grateful for the excellent planning and delivery of the workshops by skilled and inclusive presenters, who create a space that is both welcoming and invites participants to challenge existing ideas and world views.
