Adam Davis returns to the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 1:00 PM to host an Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project. “The Middle Class and Other Stories of Wealth, Status and, Redux” will be a follow-up to Adam’s visit in January of 2018 when the community gathered to discuss the decline of the middle class in today’s society. At that time, participants in the program expressed an interest of re-visiting the same topic to see how things have – or have not – changed. Those who attended Adam’s discussion last year are encouraged to come again and voice their opinions. Others who were not present in 2018 are also welcome to come and add to the conversation.
Adam Davis is the Executive Director of Oregon Humanities. In his previous role as director of the Center for Civic Reflection, Davis designed and implemented “Justice Talking/The Meaning of Service,” a nationwide discussion program for AmeriCorps, VISTA, and other service organizations. Davis has given keynotes and published articles on service, volunteering, and leadership, and facilitated workshops at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service and other national and regional conferences. Davis edited Taking Action and co-edited The Civically Engaged Reader, receiving his PhD from the University of Chicago.
