Classified: How to Stop Hiding Your Privilege and Use It For Social Change
by Karen Pittelman and Resource Generation, with illustrations by Molly Hein
The fight for economic justice can draw some stark battle lines. It is often painted as an “us versus them” struggle, with the rich in the role of “them,” and the rest cast as “us.” Where does that leave young people with wealth who believe in social change? Afraid of being branded the enemy, yet deeply committed to social justice, they are left wandering in a confusing no man’s land.
Classified is a guide for people with class privilege who are tired of cover-ups, who are ready to dig through the buried files and figure out how their privilege really works. Complete with comics, exercises and personal stories, Classified gives its readers the tools they need to stop hiding their privilege and instead put it to work.
“I love this book.”
-William Upski Wimsatt, author of Bomb the Suburbs and No More Prisons
“By acknowledging with respect the challenges of being a ‘have’ in a world of ‘have-nots,’ by making us giggle occasionally and by forcing us to face frankly the stereotypes of the wealthy, this book presents a treasure trove of solutions for the reader.”
-Amy Domini, founder of Domini Social Equity, the world’s largest socially responsible mutual fund
