People who are not affected by (specific) experiences of discrimination and use their privilege to address or redress grievances engage in power sharing. This power sharing can take different forms: For example, when spaces are opened up to allow all perspectives on a situation or circumstance to be heard. Power sharing also includes not derailing individual experiences of discrimination.
Martin Luther King’s (1929-1968) statement, “In the end, we will not remember the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends,” can serve as a guiding principle for power sharing. [“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.”].
