Jay Taylor

Jay Taylor is a social worker dedicated to social justice and equality initiatives.  Taylor has worked in anti-human trafficking, community health centers, young men’s restorative programing, psychiatric hospitals, university wellness centers and as an adjunct professor.  His involvement with men’s issues began when he worked with men in anti-human trafficking and domestic violence programs. Taylor’s community involvement led to partnerships with domestic violence shelters, women’s groups, and universities to develop strategies for decreasing the prevalence of domestic violence and sexual assault against all persons.  He has also worked with university administration to address cultures of masculinity as an avenue to developing sexual assault prevention programs on campus.  Taylor teaches and trains with a focus on intersectional equality – addressing how race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality and class play a role in maintaining or preventing violence against others.
