Julie Garza-Withers

aliah majonJulie Garza-Withers is a former award-winning community college Sociology instructor. She was co-facilitator in the Stirfry Seminars documentary film, If These Halls Could Talk. She is currently using Sociology as a community organizer and researcher for racial justice in rural northern California. She has published at Working Class Studies, and Classism.org.

Julie has a particular interest in class intersections and classism as a form of social stratification, and the role of cussing and anti-intellectualism in stratifying society. She considers herself a working class academic because she is a first-generation college grad who grew up in rural southern California as the youngest of four kids.

Julie has an M.A. from California State University, Chico, where she studied social class, gender, and co-worker relations. She lives in rural northern California with her husband Larry where they enjoy the forest, their dogs, and gardening.
