Race and Class narrative in Covid-19 with CLASS and Runnymede




Jun 25 2020 11:00 - 12:00


Covid-19 has impacted the lives of working class brown and black people the most in the UK - but are we telling a compelling story about why this is happening and what can be done about it?

CLASS and Runnymede have been working together on an exciting project which aims to tell this new story, both in the context of coronavirus and beyond.

So we are super excited to have Faiza Shaheen from CLASS and Nina Kelly from Runnymede present their 'Race & Class Messaging' work- https://twitter.com/RunnymedeTrust/status/1188711965708951552

DATE: 25th June

TIME: 11am to 12.00am

Zoom link will be made available a week before the event. 

More details:

The "white working class" has been weaponised by the right in politics for years, pitting the working class against black, brown and migrant communities. However during the pandemic, the POC and migrant experiences are becoming more of a focus when talking about the essential workers we depend on.

Now when it is difficult to ignore and erase race from the working class narrative, Faiza and Nina will talk about how we incorporate language that fights the right's 'divide and rule' tactics along migration, racial and religious lines.
