WHAT IS THE PRIVILEGE CAFÉ
The Privilege Café is a virtual space founded and grounded on the back of creating a space where voices that have been marginalized and othered for a very long time, are now welcomed and included, respected and listened to. The authentic and organic conversations have created a foundation of inclusivity for those sharing their lived experiences, a safe space where white privilege is the foundation of each conversation and a part of the journey of change.
As the founder of the café Mymuna, IS a Somali-Welsh resident of Butetown had a sole focus of creating positive dialogue that wasn’t part and parcel of talking shops that had no foundation but rather focused on an action-based approach working to highlight privilege and its impacts within society.

‘I would love to hold the Café both in physical locations and online events. I would love to see Mymuna host discussions far and wide, she is an absolute powerhouse and she has brought us together to make change. We have to do that together and everywhere’ (Leena Sarah Farhart).
‘I would describe the space as a hub of learning, relearning and application. The discussions had are not empty discussions; but rather, calls to action. Many things have come out of The Café, including making connections with other attendees so that we can work together on anti-racism and global citizenship workshops in education’. (Naila Missous).
‘I made the conscious decision to attend all sessions that I could, including those that as a recruiter, I didn’t think were ‘Relevant’ to my role. After a couple of sessions learning more about the lack of education around history involving black communities in Wales and the issues still faced with racism in the police force in the UK,I realised just how little I knew, and how different my life experience and opportunities have been to people living so close to me’ (Henry Field).’
‘Attending The Privilege Café is like being at a big, welcoming community centre where you come to listen to discussions about the world we live in where the conversation is being directed by Black and Non-Black women of Colour’ (Claire Vaughan).
