Full Description of Project

Class Conversations is coming to UU Berkeley, CA this October 14, 2017! This day-long workshop (10:00-4:30), intended for UUs in the greater CA Bay Area, includes lunch and morning refreshments. The instructors will include Rev. Dorothy Emerson and Denise Moorehead, two of the founders of Class Conversations, as well as Megan Dowdell. The workshop will help UUs become more aware of economic and social class distinctions and how they impact society as a whole, play out in our congregations, and affect the quality of our social justice work.  We need to raise additional money beyond individual registrations (which are on a sliding scale of $20-50, no one turned away for lack of funds) to cover the transportation and housing costs for the instructors and to provide food.
