Focus of workshop: Our efforts for social change will be stronger if we learn to build bridges across differences in social class, as well as other differences. Organizations vary by class culture, and groups come to coalitions with varied resources and clout, creating tricky class dynamics. This workshop will build on our own class experiences to sharpen our cross-class alliance building skills.
