Gloria Taylor (1950 – 7 April 2008) was a Nigerian activist whose 10-year-old son, Damilola Taylor, was brutally attacked and murdered by two youths in a vicious attack at the North Peckham Estate of South London in November 2000. Her son's murder called attention to social and economic crises in the UK's poorer inner city neighborhoods.

Taylor later worked as an activist following her son's murder stating that she wanted to provide opportunities for Britain's "downtrodden and underprivileged youth."  Taylor and her husband, Richard Taylor, established the Damilola Taylor Trust, with the financial support of politicians and celebrities such as soccer player Rio Ferdinand.
