All Souls Unitarian Church

Class Action is excited to partner with many other social change organizations on the day after the inauguration to participate in the J21 Teach-In. This teach-in will connect people from a varied movements with one another to join and invite participation in existing grassroots campaigns, and to acquire skills to become more effective organizers at home.

werisej21y3-1024x764Class Action is offering a 2-hour workshop for participants to help building social movements across race and class.

Building lasting and strong social movements not only requires transforming our political systems and institutions, but also transforming the systems of privilege and inequality that continue to divide communities. This interactive popular education workshop will begin to explore how our own race and class backgrounds affect our work for social change. We must learn how to build stronger multi-racial and cross-class alliances to ensure long-term success that benefits collective communities, not just those with privilege. Join Class Action to explore our own class journeys, intersections with race, and the implications for our social change work.
