Overview

Negative words and actions are powerful tools used to discriminate against underprivileged populations.

In this book, readers will learn not only how to spot classism, but also how to stand up for themselves and others in effective ways. This book contains tools on dealing with the issues surrounding social class, particularly by debunking the top ten myths that perpetuate classism to a list of questions that readers can ask a professional if they feel they have witnessed discrimination.
