Class Action is an activist group that focuses on social class/socioeconomic status as an urgent issue facing our generation. All humans are fundamentally oppressed by the current economic system, which relies on upon class differentiation.

We openly oppose all forms of prejudice and discrimination on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, income, nationality, national origin, religion, political orientation, and physical, mental or psychological ability. Such mentalities of oppression are the context in which class differentiation presents itself, as well as the mechanism by which it perpetuates itself.

We recognize that no single person or group of people is responsible for class differentiation and conflict. Inequality is a systemic and institutional problem which must be examined and understood on a structural, historical context. We are dedicated to non-violence and cooperation in our efforts to fight against class inequality.
