A grassroots campaign fighting class inequality and structural classism
Founded and run by working class young people, Britain Has Class platforms working class voices; connects and trains working class activists; and campaigns for explicit, permanent representation for working class people.
Inequality between classes is deeply engrained in our society, connected by and compounded by other inequalities including race, gender and disability. While politicians and the media fawn over ‘hard-working families’ and ‘authentic’ British stories, our rights at work are assaulted, our community funding is slashed and our representatives are frozen out of the discussion. Social, economic and cultural class bleed into every part of British life, and with them comes a structural classism than needs fighting.
At Britain Has Class, we believe that real systems change needs consistency and strategy: explicit, permanent positions for working class representatives in public life; proper support and resources for working class communities; and a coherent vision of a society without inequality, built by a new generation of working class activists.
