    Exploring Race and Class Intersections

    This workshop, co-sponsored by Class Action, Social Justice Fund NW and Oregon Food Bank explores the critical link between class and race in the United States. It starts by examining the historical basis for classism and racism and then invites people to examine how race and class impacts our individual life experiences. The workshop is interactive and experiential and participants should be prepared to examine and talk about the origins of their own class backgrounds and racial identities.

    The general goals of the workshop are as follows:

    1. Shared understanding and framework for discussing class and race
    2. Understanding how race and class have operated structurally throughout history
    3. Increasing awareness of individual own racial and class identities and their impact
    4. Explore steps we can take towards greater race and class equity
    

    Cost: $25-$150 based on ability to pay.

    SPACE IS LIMITED
