BUILDING STRONGER CROSS-CLASS ALLIANCES
Date Saturday November 05
Time 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location Details
WHERE: Niebyl Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, Ashby BART
Event Type Other
Organizer/AuthorJohn Welton
WHO: Betsy Leondar-Wright, Director at United for a Fair Economy, and economic justice activist, author of: "Class Matters: Cross-Class Alliance Building.

WHAT: Session will open up the unspoken issue of class differences and how we can cross them to build stronger movements for social change.

Registration: This event requires pre-registration, email John Welton at jwelton@vocecomm.com

WHY: Class is the elephant under the carpet in many groups working for
progressive social change. When we walk into a group, we can immediately
make pretty good guesses about the gender and race of the people in the
room, and we share common vocabulary to discuss dynamics between men and
women or between white people and people of color. But our lack of shared
vocabulary about class may leave a blank spot in our political analysis.
