Social justice work is taxing, which means we need to have a little fun and call out fakequity in jest. Today we give you the next Entitlement BINGO card – Social Justice Edition.
In our collective work around social justice, racial equity, and community building work the Fakequity team has heard these excuses, lines, and witnessed these actions many times. This is our way of saying if you see yourself on the board, we aren’t calling you out. Many of us have committed these fakequity sins. In order to get closer to racial equity we need to grow and learn how to spot fakequity so we can stop fakequity and get to equity.
We offer this BINGO card in good spirit. We do not recommend leaving it lying around with people’s names on it. No one wants to see their name in a square on this BINGO card.
Some suggestions on how to use it:
- Take the topics and start conversations about how privilege shows up in our social justice work
- Use it to debrief a meeting asking attendees to talk about how power showed up
- If you are leading a meeting share it at the beginning of the meeting to remind people of behaviors we want to squash
Share your suggestions for comments to put in the squares or how you think it might be used. If we gather enough material we’ll make another BINGO board.
