Exploring Class: A Weekend Workshop Saturday and Sunday, March 11th & 12th, 10 AM-6PM
An opportunity for intensive dialogue about a taboo topic! What class did you grow up in? What strengths and limitations came out of your class background? How has your class background affected your relationships with people of the same and different classes? What are key elements of your class culture? How do different class cultures look? What would you like to ask people who grew up in completely different class backgrounds? ??What are the larger economic and political factors affecting class now? ??How do class dynamics show up in your life? Your work? Your home? Your community? ??What are steps you can take to overcome class barriers in your life personally and institutionally? ??How do you decide how much to pay, how do you value different choices you make? Join a diverse group to explore these questions and more!

Location: Park Day School, Oakland, CA (accessible by BART)
