Since receiving the Defender of Democracy award in September 2000, Jay Taber
has endeavored to put the lessons learned from his extensive community organizing experience to good use through curricular development, publishing, and online mentoring. A key contributor to the composition of the Activism and Social Change program at New College of California, author of five books, and editor of the online journal Skookum, Jay's work has been nationally recognized for making the essentials of applied research accessible to a wide audience.
More recently, as his writing has attracted an international following through his association with the Center for World Indigenous Studies, Jay has shifted focus to accommodate the geopolitical perspectives required in helping younger activists, writers, and scholars comprehend the challenges ahead. Toward that end, in July 2006 he designed a proposal in conjunction with the Public Good Project for a national learning center to provide hands-on guidance in investigative research, analysis and communication.Jay is currently available for guest instructing, motivational speaking, as well as private one-on-one tutoring or consultation.
