Paul Johnson

2021, Ron Hering Awards

“I create safety in the world by holding a vision of the Divine for the protection of the initiation of the sacred masculine for myself and for the world.”

Paul has dedicated his life to battling racism, sexism, and homophobia in the labor movement. We celebrate his exceptional contributions to making the world a safer place and living his mission, both inside and outside MKP. Paul was a local business representative in the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, a union organization with more than 17,000 members. His role exposed him too many challenging situations throughout his career which called for a different viewpoint, to resolve cultural issues. Paul’s wisdom and experience he developed in his years with MKP, enabled him to handle a vast array of diverse situations. His work in changing men’s perspectives to see each other as human, with differences, still lives lives on today. In the early 2000s, he designed and facilitated a training program called “Blind Privilege”, which educates and supports men looking at their learned childhood core beliefs that perpetuate racism and privilege in the world. Paul is a Chicago native and a former IBEW labor representative. He was initiated as a New Warrior in 1993 at Camp Henry Horner. He has staffed over 92 MKP weekends, including as a certified co-leader.”
