Your Privilege Is Showing (YPIS) is a facilitated social justice card game and experience that enables participants to use real world examples of bias as catalyst for self and community change. By creating a structured approach of empathetic discourse to talk about racism, sexism, and privilege, the game draws upon the value of real-life experiences in order to enhance social justice literacy. Essentially, it gives players the social structure they don't normally have, so they can talk about issues they don't normally talk about, while challenging them to understand what they may be missing. The participants get the chance to practice and navigate discussing their personal experiences with privilege, racism, white supremacy, white privilege, sexism, homophobia, and misogyny. 

The fundamental philosophy of YPIS is that systems of oppression (sexism, racism, privilege, ableism, classism, among others) are both personal and universal. We have all, no matter who we are, internalized and participated in these systems, and are hurt by them in some way. But we don’t talk about them. The game provides a structure for these conversations to happen.  Different perspectives can be shared in a safe environment and vulnerability and honesty can be rewarded.
