    Use a piece of paper to map your "character's steps" -- do they get ahead or do they fall behind and how far ahead or how far behind? Do they have privilege and power?? ( I am a bit OCD so I use graph paper -- but use whatever you have on hand.)  
    Life Scenarios/Milestones (if you missed some in the video or you prefer you can use these)
    1. I can easily receive and use ballots to successfully vote in elections so that I help elect those who are representative of me (someone like me who represents my issues, culture values and beliefs).
    2. I always have my basic needs met so that I can work on my career and the American Dream (shelter stable, food stable, safe, clothed etc).
    3. I graduated (or will graduate) High School and/or earn(ed) a GED.
    4. I provide (will provide) a safe and secure home with attachment parenting for children I am responsible for.
    5.  I can successfully utilize the better shelters and can find free nutritious meals when needed. 
    6. I successfully access public assistance and navigate the system -- even use it to my benefit (or my children's benefit). 
    7. I can access trade or schooling to advance my career choice.
    8. I have a support network to help me when life throws me a curve ball (or 3).
    9. I can access and afford prenatal care for myself or my partner.
    10. My friends/coworkers support my success and help me grow and achieve a better life.
    11. I view law enforcement as friendly and trustworthy -- I have a generally good view of law enforcement. 
    12. My world is safe.
    13. My job is stable and secure.
    14. I have transportation to get where I need to go.
    Try to think from all angles and really consider each of these for your character. Do you discover any implicit bias you have for or against your character? Any surprise reactions/reflections?
    When you are all finished.... did you take for granted that this character has an easy life? Did you take for granted that this character has a life that is "all bad?" Consider this: Is it possible that the individual could have more going for them (or less going for them) than you gave them credit for? Send me a photo and reflections/responses including the questions I asked in the video.
