From Saving to Serving to ...? : On Intervening in the Lives of Others

February 15, 2020 | 10:15 a.m. | Eastern Oregon University

1 University Blvd., Ackerman 210, La Grande OR 97850

Many of us try to make a positive difference in the world through our work and volunteering, and we often find that this can be difficult. The language of helping reflects this difficulty. Charity sounds admirable to some and offensive to others. Service can be bland, saving can be paternalistic, and social entrepreneurship can feel corporate. Join Oregon Humanities Executive Director Adam Davis for a conversation that will explore why it’s so hard to find the right words for the good work we try to do in the world. How should we think and talk about our efforts to make positive change?
