I feel left out when many of my classmates tell me about their vacations abroad.
I'm lucky enough to be here, but sometimes it's pretty alienating.

What we do:
$ocial Classmates ($C) is a student organization at Brown University working to raise awareness, foster dialogue and take action on issues pertaining to social class disparities and classism in the student body. Our activities include semester-long, month-long and one-time workshops that aim to create a safe space in which students may constructively explore social class. The workshops aim to de-stigmatize and demystify social class through inviting students to investigate their social class, the privileges and disadvantages of their class and systems of class disparity and classism, through dialogues with students of other classes.
