Community, Nonprofits and Businesses sharing Information
On March 28th, 2018 the U.S. Health Justice Collaborative hosted a panel event titled "Paved with Good Intentions: White Saviorism and the Non-Profit Industrial Complex." This event explored 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.
