Jer Swigart :: How do Americans enter into spaces of injustice?

  • “I don’t come in in the posture of a hero, I come in in the posture of a learner,” explains Jer Swigart, Directional Leader of The Open Door Community and Co-Founding Director of The Global Immersion Project. White Americans are used to leveraging our resources to enter in to other cultures as the hero. Rather than taking that approach, “Sometimes it looks like me laying down my privilege, sometimes it looks like me leveraging my privilege.”
