Class description

Class patterns are ever present but often unspoken in our lives and communities. In this workshop, we will look at some of the ways that class manifests and how bringing greater awareness to classism can deepen the commitment of young people with wealth in cross-class communities and struggles for social justice. We will explore questions such as: How are class differences created and enforced? What messages have we received about being wealthy? How have class differences been used historically to divide movements? How does class influence which movements get funded and how can we leverage our class experience in this? Drawing on our own experiences, we will deepen our understanding of class together.
