Exploring Class & Classism Workshop

May 17, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
$5 – $40

As the political climate has shifted, we must learn how to work better across class, and to lift up the voices of working-class and low-income people who stand to be most affected by the actions of the new administration.

“Class Action creates a safe and participatory way to explore challenging issues that we need to explore to build a more whole community.”
-Recent workshop participant

    In this workshop, participants will explore:

  • How class identities affect our lives, our work and our relationships
  • How race intersects with class
  • How we can become more inclusive with others from different class backgrounds than ourselves and why that’s important
  • How we can build community with people from all class backgrounds

Class Action has spent 13 years developing creative ways of asking questions, sharing personal experiences and helping people to engage with issues of class in a meaningful way. Our popular education workshops are highly interactive, engaging and focused on learning from one another in the room.

Facilitators: Denise Moorehead and Joanie Parker
