Building a Stronger Cross-Class, Multiracial Grassroots Movement
WHEN: Saturday, June 27, 2015 (All day)
WHERE: Richard W Black Recreation Center, 48 Lebanon St, Hanover NH
COST: $25 per person
Building on insights from the groundbreaking new book “Missing Class: Strengthening Social Movement Groups by Seeing Class Cultures,” this highly participatory workshop, 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.
