Social justice advocate and writer Tom Hayden, known for leading a 1960s movement to end the Vietnam War, will speak Friday at the Peace and Social Justice Center of South Central Kansas’s annual meeting.

The evening starts with dinner at 6:30 p.m. at Fairmount United Church of Christ, 1650 N. Fairmount, two blocks east of Hillside and south of Wichita State University.

Hayden, former husband of actress Jane Fonda, continues to oppose wars — including those in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq — and speak against war and unfair labor practices, according to the Peace and Social Justice Center.
