Race, Class, and Political Conflict

Our Race, Class, and Political Conflict course reflects the Political Leadership Academy’s industry-leading instruction on peace and conflict resolution. It is based on a robust curriculum written to illuminate and address the intersection of race and class with political conflict in the US and illuminate paths toward resolution and opportunities within the political arena and equip the participant to become more resourceful, efficient, and productive. Each session is designed on three main characteristics: imparting relevant knowledge + learning from practice + group work. For more information on the course, download our information flyer and see below for a comprehensive course overview.
