The Class Work Project has become well known for its intensive workshop programming—holding 1 or 2 day events called ‘Exploring Class’ across Britain, as well as holding online consultations with a myriad of different political and social movement groups. These programs have been profound in how they’ve supported and held space for socio-economically marginalised people, as well as creating powerful moments of reflection and evaluation that have had a long lasting impact on how organisations and communities operate moving forward. Some of the positive outcomes of these workshops and consultations have been:
- Wealth redistribution to create equity and parity between members of organisations, communities, and generally to help those in the economic margins here in Britain.
- There has been considered and sustained support of members of various organisations by other members based on recognition of inequality.
- Recognition of injustice, from the most nuanced interpersonal power relations to unambiguous material inequalities within groups/orgs/communities.
- Recognition of stigma and social status as instrumental to social dynamics.
- Empowerment and support of those who need it.
- Stronger connections between workshop goers.
- Clearer understanding of how class differences can create tensions.
- A clearer understanding on how to move forward while centering the role of class in creating unequal power relations.
