||Class Action is a small but inspiring national non-profit that raises awareness of the harm caused by classism (prejudice based on social class). We put out a vision of a world without classism, where everyone is treated with respect and everyone has enough. Our program work includes popular education workshops, first-generation student support groups, publications, Classism Exposed blog, and a website. We are connected with a bigger national non-profit, the Institute for Policy Studies.
Class Action recently published a new high-school curriculum on class and classism, Created Equal. The Youth Education Marketing Intern will solicit feedback from pilot users of "Created Equal" curriculum and assist co-authors with revisions; and market Created Equal curriculum to schools and youth programs via e-blasts, mailings, correspondence, staffing literature tables at conferences and soliciting web links and newsletter listings.
