Educator, activist and writer Susie Wilson discusses her autobiography, “Still Running: A Memoir,” on Tuesday, May 26, at 7 p.m. at Princeton Public Library.
Considered a state and national leader in the fight to prevent adolescent pregnancy, Wilson planned and managed the operations of a resource, advocacy and technical assistance organization committed to implementing sexuality education programs in public schools and community agencies, first in New Jersey and later across the nation.
A resident of Princeton, Wilson completed a six-year term on the board of trustees of the Princeton Area Community Foundation and its Fund for Women She serves on the board of the Fistula Foundation, a nonprofit that funds surgeries to repair obstetric fistulas, a devastating childbirth injury that affects many of the poorest women in Africa and Asia.
Wilson’s lecture at the library will be the inaugural Phyllis Marchand Lecture, named after the former mayor of Princeton Township.
