Elisabeth Gagneur


Elisabeth Gagneur is the Chair of C.L.A.S.S.E.S (Lyonnais Collective for Access to Schooling and the Support of Children in Squats); she co-founded the organization because she could not stand the fact that some children were growing up in Lyon without having access to school. She is a former schoolteacher and director of a primary school, and thought her skills may benefit the cause. The children who do not have access to school are almost all Rroma, which meant C.L.A.S.S.E.S soon became close to other Rroma rights organizations.
