Different Class is a group dedicated to thinking critically about society and everyday life. Our discussions are focused on answering a question and we often use a reading to help gather our thoughts. Attendees don't need any special background knowledge to participate and it's fine if you find the text hard to get to grips with - that's part of what the discussion's for!
