Youth and Social Justice

The first session in this fall's Indiana Town Hall Series, "Youth and Social Justice", takes place 6 October in the Indiana History Center, 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis.

It begins at 6 p.m. with a reception and information fair, followed at 7 p.m. by the panel conversation.

Sheila Seuss Kennedy, professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis, will discuss the historic nature of social justice in American democracy.

A conversation-focused panel featuring local youth and youth organizations will then examine what social justice means in today’s world. This moderated discussion will be led by Dr. David Craig, IUPUI Religious Studies, and will feature student-activists with the Latino Youth Collective as well as representatives from the Marion County Commission on Youth and other organizations.

Admission is free.

Future sessions are 10 November and 1 December.
