    Being a Savior Saves Nobody (The White Savior Complex)

    This webinar addresses the harmful inequities of folks adopting the White Savior Complex/White Saviorism in practice while doing community service work. While many

    good-intentioned folks work to serve the community, oftentimes, they adopt characteristics of white supremacy in serving disenfranchised communities of color based on ignorance, lack of self-awareness and lack of community input.

    Social Work breaks barriers that prevent people and communities from thriving and living life to the fullest. All across the country and here in MN Social Workers are breaking barriers and helping people to have better access to compassionate healthcare, to better embrace and support children who are LGBTQIA2S+, help people in exercising their voting rights and accessing better jobs, and so much more. While folks in this profession can be found in various settings and responsibilities, we share the same principles - our dedication to seeking equality and social justice for all communities and helping people achieve their own potential.
