Change or Charity? Exploring the Potential Unintended Consequences of Doing Good
When many of us see individuals struggling or widespread social problems, we are compelled to intervene.

This interactive workshop will interrogate the differences between charity and change. Together, we will develop best change practices for social justice advocates and activists.
