"Why have we seen so few cross-class, multiracial movements in the US?"
"Does your group struggle with recruiting and retaining members from different class & race backgrounds?"

Join us for a workshop built on insights from the groundbreaking new book, "Missing Class: Strengthening Social Movement Groups by Seeing Class Cultures". Facilitated by our colleagues from Class Action, this highly participatory workshops, created by activists for activists, enables participants to look through a class lens at their own social justice work, and offers tools to build alliances for social change across race and class. 

Through this process, activists and community organizers can learn how to address class barriers that hamper their effectiveness and come together to win more gains. Participants will leave knowing how to:

  • Identify activist class culture differences;

  • Gain cultural competence to draw from the strengths of all class cultures;

  • Create an organizational culture that is fully welcoming and respectful of all race and class backgrounds;

  • Amplify the voices of people of color, working-class and poor activists to build stronger a stronger movement.
