Are we ‘missing class’? Long-time economic justice activist Betsy Leondar-Wright, program director of Class Action, reveals how discovering class cultures can be transformative for social justice groups. This will be an unusual, fun book event, in which the ideas of the book will be all around you – on the walls, hanging from helium balloons, and in interactive activities. Part of JP’s First Thursdays.

To commemorate the 10th birthday celebration, Class Action will be presenting a Cross-Class Bridge Builder award to a local organization fighting for social justice. Do you have a nomination? Please fill out this form.
