Class Action is a national nonprofit organization that provides trainings, strategies, and resources to individuals, organizations, and institutions to explore class and dismantle classism, with a particular focus on the intersections between class and race. Our strategies are based on core values of bridging the class divide, building cross-class alliances, and promoting economic justice. Class Action challenges individuals and groups, schools, foundations, and social change organizations to think—and act—systemically. Our programs and resources are designed to promote long-term change on multiple levels, from the individual, to organizations, institutions, and, ultimately, society as a whole.
