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.
