The time has never been better to talk about class. Cross-class dialogue circles are a powerful way for people across the class spectrum to come together to talk about their experiences with class, listen to each others’ stories and perspectives, and then to work together as change makers for economic justice. We held the concluding session of our most recent Circle just a few days after the election.

Cross-Class Dialogue Circles bring together community members with a diversity of class experiences, ranging from being homeless to staying in 5 star resorts and everything in between. Our goals in meeting together are to better understand class as part of an economic system and our own experience with class and how it shows up in our daily life and communication (including how class intersects with race, gender, disability, and so on), to learn and share practical tools for contributing to economic justice, and to build stronger community ties for economic justice. We meet these goals with courage, depth, humor, and sincerity.

Childcare and transportation available, light refreshments provided. Wheelchair accessible. Fragrance free.

How do I get involved?

The dialogue circle is funded through a cost-sharing process: In the last session, through structured reflection and conversation, each person will decide how they should contribute to the cost of the program, through personal contributions, fundraising efforts, and/or donation of time/skills. In past circles, contributions have ranged from $0-$1000 and 0-30 hours of work. You will decide the contribution that feels right to you.
