Natalya Rapoport, the W.W. Clyde Chair in the College of Engineering at the University of Utah, will speak Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church, 569 S. 1300 East.

Rapoport has spent 29 years in polymer chemical research and is a member of "Memorial," a democratic movement that lobbied for a memorial to the victims of totalitarianism and continues to oppose the violent anti-Semitism of "Pamyat." The Memorial movement became active before "Peristroika" made it safe. Rapoport will discuss her involvement and the cost her family has paid for her activism.The forum is open to the public and will last about an hour.
