FACTUALITY is a facilitated dialogue, crash course, and board game, all in one, that simulates structural inequality, in America. FACTUALITY is played with eight characters that belong to the following racial/ethnic groups: Asian, Caucasian, African American, and Latinx. There are male and female characters, two LGBTQ characters, and a Muslim character. Each character encounters a series of fact-based advantages and limitations based on the intersection of their race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, faith, and class.
FACTUALITY's board game delivery allows participants to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, allowing for a courageous conversation about structural inequality, in America. In under 90 minutes, participants will discuss and unpack the structural limitations and advantages that coincide with various intersecting identities. Participants are required to select an identity/character that differs from their own, removing much of the angst that inevitably plagues conversations regarding inequity.
In under 90 minutes, FACTUALITY engages participants in a conversation that includes but is not limited to: racial, ethnic, gender, religious, faith, and sexual orientation discrimination, privilege, gender and racial pay gaps, redlining and gentrification, median income averages by race and gender, class, (mental) health disparities, prison and bail disparities, education inequity, and intersectionality. FACTUALITY is a board game, and board games are notoriously engaging, which makes its inclusive cultural competency component, uniquely digestible.
Participants will become acquainted with the intricacies of inequality's intentionally structured foundation and its crippling cyclical nature.
Participants will be able to dismantle the various preconceived biases associated with various marginalized groups.
Participants will leave self-aware and can (begin to) contribute to inclusive rhetoric regarding the dissolution of structural inequality in UNDER 90 MINUTES.
