Make Your Own Passport- Erin Simard

Unfortunately, a part of having such enormous privilege is not even realizing all of the ways in which my privilege can manifest itself. Being white, cis, and straight, I was well aware of the fact that my privilege in these areas has benefited me in too many ways to count throughout my lifetime; however, I never truly considered the privilege that comes with not only being a citizen of the wealthiest nation in the world, but in even having a passport at all. A passport (or, essentially, citizenship) is one of the most basic items I thought someone could have. This workshop made it extremely clear to me that just in thinking that, I can claim another whole host of privileges that millions of people around the world deserve but do not have.
