Bookworks/ProgressNowNM Event: Jordon Flaherty, “No More Heroes: Grassroots Challenges to the Savior Mentality”

March 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

 Co-sponsored by ProgressNow New Mexico. Bookworks will donate 10% of store sales from 2-5 pm to ProgressNow.

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 aNo More Heroes: Grassroots Challenges to the Savior Mentality Cover Imageppeared as a guest on a wide range of television and radio shows including Anderson Cooper 360, CNN Headline News, and News and Notes on NPR. His most recent book is Floodlines: Community and Resistance From Katrina to the Jena Six. Flaherty has produced content for Al Jazeera America and is executive producer of The Laura Flanders Show.
