Rev. Adam Taylor, vice president of advocacy for World Vision, U.S., and former White House fellow in the Obama administration, will present "The Future of Social Justice Activism for a Post-Civil Rights Generation" at Kent State University on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m. The fall symposium is hosted by the Center for the Study of Information and Religion in the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS). The talk will take place in Room 317 of the Kent Student Center. It is free and open to the public.

Taylor will also talk with SLIS students today in a special lunchtime presentation on his book, “Mobilizing Hope.”

Both talks will be webcast:

Noon: "Mobilizing Hope"

7 p.m.: "The Future of Social Justice Activism for a Post-Civil Rights Generation”

In his book Mobilizing Hope, Taylor draws upon the heritage of faith-based activism to encourage young people to be politically engaged and to fight for justice and human rights. His presentation at Kent State will help students, faculty and staff understand how they can play a critical role in combating injustice and inequality in today's society.
