  • Image preview 4:00pm - 5:00pm: 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. What happens, however, when we don’t utilize a critical lens to examine the potential unintended consequences of our well-intentioned actions? This interactive workshop will interrogate the differences between charity and change. Together, we will develop best change practices for social justice advocates and activists.
