Reading with Jordan Flaherty

Join us Monday, May 1st, for a May Day reading with Jordan Flaherty!

How can we build a better world? And why do so many people with privilege end up making things worse when they try to help? It s called the savior mentality, and Jordan Flaherty finds it in FBI informants, anti-sex-work crusaders, Teach For America corps members, and out-of-touch journalists. No More Heroes celebrates grassroots challenges to these saviors and highlights movements focused on real, systemic change from the Arab Spring to Black Lives Matter.

He has appeared as a guest on a wide range of television and radio shows including Anderson Cooper 360CNN Headline News, and News and Notes on NPR. His most recent book is Floodlines: Community and Resistance From Katrina to the Jena Six.
