About the workshop: Resource Generation invites you to an intimate 3 hour workshop for young people of color age 18-35, with class privilege or access to wealth. We will talk about the racial wealth divide, the ways that class can serve as a wedge within communities of color, and the effects class privilege has had on our lives. Through storytelling, building connections, and examining contradictions at the intersections of race and class, participants will come away with tools to strengthen our understanding of ourselves and our work for social justice.
How do you know this workshop is for you?
A. If these sound familiar to your experience:
1. You have no debt
2. You have access to wealth
3. You don’t currently have wealth but are likely to inherit money, property, jewelry or other assets
4. Your family paid for your college tuition
5. You or your family have financially supported other members of your extended family or community
6. You live simply but that is a choice and not financial necessity
B. You are interested in exploring some of these questions
- What is my actual class background? I have more than some but less than a lot of others.
- Does class privilege and access to wealth provide a buffer against racism?
- What does it mean to be in solidarity with each other as people of color from various class backgrounds and different communities of color?
This workshop is sponsored by Resource Generation. Resource Generation organizes young people with wealth and class privilege to become transformative leaders and works towards the equitable distribution of wealth, land and power.
