Rebirth and Revival in Johnstown, Pennsylvania (Spring 2016-17)

Hunter Zepeda is an Oberlin Business Scholar and recipient of the Susan L. Phillips grant for Social Justice work. His Religion capstone in Modern Religious Thought focuses on the theological movement of Liberation Theology. An economics and religion double major, Hunter is compelled by socio-economic disparity and institutionalized structures which stratify and perpetuate such disparities. These interests coalesce into his study of Liberation Theology and similar social justice movements which tend to use religion as a means to sustain and motivate social justice movements.
