ENVISION THIS: Economic and social justice activists sensitive to differences in class cultures
Betsy Leondar-Wright is an economic justice activist, sociologist and author, who writes on class and economic inequality. For nine years she was the Communications Director at United for a Fair Economy, and co-authored UFE's new book The Color of Wealth: The Story Behind the U.S. Racial Wealth Divide. She is currently the Project Director and Senior Trainer at Class Action, a non-profit that raises consciousness about class and money, where she edits the blog “Classism Exposed.” Betsy’s latest of twelve books, Missing Class: Strengthening Social Movement Groups by Seeing Class Cultures, was just published in 2014.
Betsy says, "Often the paid organizers in low-income communities come from professional middle-class backgrounds. I worked as a community organizer for many years, and the class dynamics can be tricky..." From an interview she conducted with Dorian Warren, she quotes,"Don't do things for people, but help them speak for themselves." Understanding the perspective, values, and goals of the people you are working with or trying to organize is so crucial that Betsy's current work focuses on helping activists to form cross-class coalitions in movements for social change
Join our discussion on this crucial aspect of creating a more just, equitable, and inclusive future.

Dr. John H. Clarke reminds us that 'All History is a Current Event'. The events which transpired 5000 years ago, 5 years ago or 5 minutes ago will determine what happens 5 minutes from now, 5 years from now and 5000 years from now. 'All History is a CURRENT EVENT!
The original, basic- initial unfinished bussiness among people is the development of a classification tool called 'Race'.
To eliminate any major problem among people we must first eliminate the problem of Functional Racism which is White Supremacy. Justice will be a better system than what we have. Justice meaning no one mistreated Black or white.

ECONOMIC SECURITY is as important a part of our national security as military policy. NATIONAL SECURITY can be described as a capacity to control domestic and foreign conditions that a given community believes necessary to enjoy its own self-determination or autonomy, prosperity and wellbeing. ECONOMIC SECURITY or financial security is the condition of having stable income or other resources to support a standard of living now and in the foreseeable future. Some characteristics of economic security might include continued solvency, predictability of a person’s future cash flow, employment or job security. At YouthUSA, economic security means increasing assets and reducing liabilities where we live, learn, work and worship. YouthUSA economic security programs qualify American youth as assets and not liabilities in their communities. in doing so, we reduce historic threats to young American lives, build trust in American communities, and ensure security for our homeland.
