Jennifer Bailey Speaks on

April 16th, 2011 by Adam

Plymouth, N.H.The Saul O Sidore Lecture Series at Plymouth State University will present Jennifer Bailey speaking on “Interfaith Leadership in a Time of Global Religious Crisis” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 18.

Bailey is campus engagement associate at the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC). In this capacity she travels to college campuses to promote religious pluralism and offer skills training.
Bailey will speak about how interfaith leadership can help create understanding and respect throughout the world. She asks how, in a world too often convinced of the inevitable class of civilizations, do we lead our communities of faith to work with people from different religious backgrounds and serve the common good?

Prior to joining IFYC Bailey served as a Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellow at Community Food Advocates in Nashville. There she worked with religious congregations to advocate for increasing access to full-service grocery stores in Nashville’s three “food desert” areas. She also designed an interfaith toolkit on engaging religious youth in the food justice movement.

Bailey earned her BA in political science at Tufts University. She is a Galbraith Scholar and a Harry S. Truman Scholar.

Sean Esbjörn-Hargens will be the final speaker in the 2011 Sidore Lecture Series, speaking on “Integral Ecology: Things are Simultaneously Getting Worse, Getting Better and are Already Perfect,” May 2.

The Sidore Lecture Series, named for humanitarian and New Hampshire businessman Saul O Sidore, was established in 1979 by PSU and the Sidore Memorial Foundation. The series brings a variety of speakers to campus to address critical issues and events in politics, society and culture, topics that reflect Sidore’s interests.

All Sidore events begin at 7 p.m. and are free and open to the public at the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center on Main Street in Plymouth.
