Indivisible Illinois Social Justice Alliance:
Build Bridges Not Walls Part II: How the Race Class Narrative can create cross-racial solidarity and unite all voters
Wednesday, June 8, 7:30 PM CDT
Last March the Indivisible Illinois Social Justice Alliance hosted speakers who addressed the unifying language of the Race Class Narrative. Back by popular demand is Penn Garvin who will provide additional training. Since the last event America has faced more gun violence, attacks against reproductive freedom and troubling information about the January 6th insurrection against our country. We gather on Wednesday, June 8th at 7:30pm CDT to learn how to move forward in a divided nation with help from the Race Class Narrative.
What is the Race Class Narrative? Our opposition regularly uses racial fear as a tool to exploit economic anxieties. They do this by framing their arguments in terms of one group getting more at the expense of the other group even when, in reality, the economic interests of both groups are the same. In doing this, our opposition turns each group against a government that works for all groups. Race Class Narrative messaging fights back at these attacks by showing that both groups are fighting the same enemy, namely, the politicians and corporations holding both groups back. This is what convinces the largest possible group of White people to support our economic and racial justice policy solutions. Learn how proper messaging can fight back against these attacks and what actions we can take today to address these challenges.
