In partnership with    From January 22-26, Death, Sex & Money is partnering with Buzzfeed News to share conversations and essays about class and money—and the ways they manifest in our day to day lives and in our relationships with each other.     For the past few months, we've been asking for your stories about when you've felt your class status the most. All next week, we're sharing five conversations about class—whatever that means to you—and the ways it intersects with different parts of our lives. Two best friends talk about how being on the opposite ends of the middle class have impacted their ability to start families. A first-generation college student deep in debt bemoans how hard it is to climb up the class ladder—and how easy it is to fall down it. A mother of two teenagers talks about how her life looks different after her financial situation changed post-divorce. A son talks with his father about how their family became part of the 1%—and why it's not all it's cracked up to be. And a 73-year-old Vietnam vet who never got comfortable in the professional world reflects on how being white allowed him a level of fluidity in class status not afforded some of his non-white colleagues and friends. Look for those episodes all next week, January 22-26. In the meantime, take our class survey below!      Loading...   "Class is complicated. So, so complicated," a listener named Jessica wrote to us when we asked for your stories about class. While it pops up in many ways in our lives, class is a term that can be hard to pin down, and isn't just about money. "My class is defined by my home and my education," one listener wrote. "Class is your ability to rebound from inevitable setbacks," another said. "Class does not define our worth or ability as humans," wrote another listener. And a listener from the UK wrote about class, "We embrace it as who we are, not what we want to become." One of our favorite class definitions came from Elizabeth in El Paso, Texas, who wrote, "I feel like class is a level of pride or shame." So we want to hear from you: what embarrasses you about your current class status, and what makes you feel pride? Plus, tell us a song that sums up where you fit, class-wise. We're making a playlist!     Don't miss the launch of Opportunity Costs! Sign up for the Death, Sex & Money newsletter below, and we will let you know when our series goes live.   Loading...

If you've been harassed or bullied on the job and are wondering what you can do about it, knowing where to start can help. Here are some resources you might find useful: The Time's Up Legal Defense Fund is a new initiative that offers subsidized legal aid to men and women who have experienced harassment or bullying on the job. From the New York Times, a roundup of advice from lawyers about what concrete steps you can take right now to document and report harassment or bullying you've experienced as it's happening—and what you can do next. The National Women's Law Center has a state-by-state breakdown of laws and policies designed to help protect women in each state, as well as resources for workplace discrimination of all sorts, including sexual harassment and wage gaps. On Feminist.org, there's a state-by-state directory of hotlines you can call to deal with emergency situations, as well as contact information for local organizations and agencies who can help closer to home. If you feel you have been the victim of discrimination at work and your employer has been unresponsive to your complaints, you can file a charge of employment discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  And outside of work, if you need to talk to someone but are on a limited budget, Open Path Collective is a network of mental health professionals who offer their services at a sharply reduced rate to people in need.
