Event had previously been set for October 2017 when fires in the Bay Area led event planners to postpone to this new date, Feb 10, 2018.
Testimony from a past Class Conversations participant: “This was such a good workshop! Talking about our class background (or even acknowledging the existence of class distinctions) comes loaded with a lot of shame. The sense that we shouldn’t talk about money and class seems to affect us regardless of where we fall on the class spectrum. The facilitators understood this and were not only gentle and accepting, themselves, but helped everyone to have non-judgmental conversations about this tender aspect of life.” – Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern
