March 21, 2017: We’re talking with activist, journalist and author Jordan Flaherty about his new book No More Heroes: Grassroots Responses to the Savior Mentality. Jordan’s new book breaks down the history of white-controlled charity in its many forms and how it has maintained oppressive systems rather than led to the dismantling of them. Jordan will share ways that people of color, queer and nongender conforming people are leading grassroots efforts which buck the control of white “saviors” and represent real approaches to collective liberation.
