The Privilege Institute (TPI) was created as a nonprofit organization in early 2014 by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. TPI develops and sustains collaborations grounded in the essential ideals of the White Privilege Conference (WPC): Understanding, Respecting, and Connecting. TPI offers multiple opportunities for advocates of peace, equity and justice to enhance their work and research by providing challenging workshops, engaging speakers, and a range of educational opportunities and resources on issues of privilege, power and leadership. TPI also publishes Understanding and Dismantling Privilege, an interdisciplinary journal focusing on intersectionality and all aspects of privilege (racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, etc.), bridging academia and practice, highlighting activism, and offering a forum for action and accountability on issues of inequity, power and privilege.
TPI provides a supportive, educational, and challenging space to work in partnership with those who share our mission and vision. We represent a diverse and multi-disciplinary network of activists, educators, youth leaders, and anyone interested in disrupting the systemic structure of white supremacy, white privilege and other forms of oppression that impact all of our lives. We are pleased to have a place where the work of both TPI and the WPC will continue to survive and thrive through the relationship model (handshake to handshake). Most importantly, at TPI, we always keep it REAL: Research. Education. Action. Leadership.
