The Long Shadow of Class considers the crucial role class and education in the UK play in creating an economically unjust society. It explores the lenses through which we view each other.

Experts in their field from very different backgrounds discuss unequal opportunities, accent bias, the markers and stigma of poverty and the devastating effects of our current economic model.

Each also offers ideas aimed at galvanising people to act for economic justice. Our six explainers highlight the need for those with lived experience to be at the forefront of policy decisions. They suggest how to effect change and inspire us all to develop a more just society, needed now more than ever.

The film forms part of a unique, rich resource created by Journey to Justice exploring the impact of economic injustice and how we can all challenge it.

The film was launched at Resource for London with subsequent screenings in Sunderland and Birmingham to enthusiastic audiences. For more details and photographs of the events please visit our Journey to Justice blog post.
