The Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights (IREHR) workshop, “Against the Tea Parties,” was attended by over 100 people at the 15th annual conference on white privilege, held in Madison, Wisconsin this year on March 27-30. In addition to educating participants about the nature, structure and goals of the Tea Party movement, the workshop also generated some marked enthusiasm for taking on Tea Parties in local communities. A second IREHR workshop on the white nationalist movement also drew more participants than chairs. The White Privilege Conference as a whole was a great success, drawing 2,300 attendees and 150 workshop leaders and speakers.
