privilege may be defined as any unearned benefit or advantage one receives in society by nature of one’s identity. examples of aspects of identity that can afford privilege include: race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, class/wealth, ability and citizenship you’re committed to social justice, it is important to be aware of and regularly check your own privilege — because systemic oppression hurts everyone.
