Just Columbus

2015 Scholar Akeem Adesiji and his educator, Andrea Patton, collaborated with students at Whetstone High School and the Department of Social Change at Ohio State University to create Just Columbus to inspire action among young people on issues of social injustice in Columbus.

Just Columbus featured three panels of speakers on issues which ranged from infant mortality to youth-centered environmental action plans. After the talks, local musical performances entertained attendees. Throughout his Local Ideas Festival experience, Akeem worked to educate young people in the Columbus community about relevant social justice issues and provide opportunities for them to get involved.
