Is there a relationship between classism and income inequality?

POSTPONED: Full-Day Workshop, December 5th


Watch the sermon Classism in UU Congregations by UU Class Conversations Steering Committee member Betsy Leondar Wright. She suggests how we can build on what we are already doing well to effectively address classism in our faith community and become truly class inclusive.

Exploring Class and Classism

UU Class Conversations provides Unitarian Universalist congregations and organizations with the tools and language to explore class and classism through a distinctly UU lens.

Building upon our faith community’s ongoing diversity work – from race to gender to sexual orientation to gender identity – the project aims to produce more welcoming congregations while strengthening our shared commitment to social justice.

"We're not rejecting this applicant because she's black; we're turning her down because she didn't go to Harvard." "We're not saying this black neighborhood is unsafe; our overwhelmingly white users are saying it's unsafe. Even though we originally included property values as part of the algorithm to define 'safe'."

Any of you watch _The Good Wife_? What do you think of these plots, and how the writers are handling them?
