No More Heroes: A Panel & Discussion

No More Heroes: A Panel & Discussion

Folks working within and alongside traditional non-profits often face significant internal structural and cultural barriers to shifting power, resources and priorities to do work informed by solidarity. Join us for lessons and antidotes to saviorism.

Trying to shift power and decision making away from a wealthy white Board of Directors towards the leadership and needs of grassroots community leaders? Curious about organizational models of mentorship and leadership development that prioritizes those of us who are People of Color, Trans and queer, immigrants, poor and disabled? Please join us.

Featuring a panel and discussion with:

Jordan Flaherty, author of No More Heroes: Grassroots Challenges to the Savior Mentality
Sapna Pandya, MPH, Executive Director of Many Languages One Voice (MLOV)
Stephanie Sneed, Co-Director of DC Fair Budget Coalition
