Power & Privilege – A Personal “Pressing” Issue

With Bob LoParo

RID has begun to require trainings in "Power, Privilege, and Oppression" (PPO) subject matter, which seems like a pioneering move for our profession.  But our cultural and linguistic roots as ASL-English Interpreters (and "Of Color"!) have always negotiated the fine lines between recognizing those in Power/those without, those with Privilege/those fighting for basic dignities, overt displays of oppression, and micro-aggressions that further alienate certain groups, but forge alliance with others.  This workshop will begin the dialogue of recognizing our own personal Power Characteristics, Unconscious Privileges, and Micro-Aggressions that Elevate/Oppress and Approve/Invalidate others through self-analysis of personal choices in constructed examples.  Small Groups will discuss personal Power/Privilege/ Oppression characteristics that we may demonstrate in our daily lives. The RID-NAD CPC and PPO actions/inactions will also be contextually considered from multiple intersecting viewpoints, resulting in applied Best Practices outcomes for all stakeholders in Interpreting situations.

Educational Objectives:

-Participants will identify 2-4 of their personal Power, Privilege, and Oppressive characteristics

- Participants will rank their personal PPO characteristics on behavioral, cognitive, linguistic, and cultural norms spectra.

- Participants will formulate 2 creative approaches to defusing and reducing personal PPO characteristics in their daily lives.

- Participants will be able to specify at least one RID-NAD CPC tenet that applies to sample situations containing PPO occurrences.
