On March 28th, 2018 from 6:30-8pm, the U.S. Health Justice Collaborative will host a panel event titled "Paved with Good Intentions: White Saviorism and the Non-Profit Industrial Complex." This event aims to explore themes of power, privilege, and financial incentive within the non-profit industry that inhibit the achievement of equity and structural reform in the United States.
Jordan Flaherty, award-winning journalist, producer, and author who has written extensively on white saviorism will speak at the event, alongside local New Haven leaders confronting these challenges in our community. In addition to raising awareness about these critical issues, the event aims to highlight strategies for dismantling white saviorism and supremacy in our work moving forward.
