Exploring the Non-profit Industrial Complex
Do you think the world is messed up in a few ways!? Are you concerned with how politicians/the City spend your money? How the media represents issues that matter to you? Do you donate your time/money to non-profits which claim to work against these forces? Who are you accountable to?
If you like these questions, this 45 minute discussion for you!
Whether we're involved in advocacy, education programs, or repair spaces - we all interface with wealth and the State, in one way or another.
