We are excited to announce that Jane Clementi will be coming to Hickory, NC to speak at "An Evening with Jane Clementi" on Monday, October 3rd at the Crowne Plaza.
Jane is all too familiar with the horrible consequences of bullying (her son Tyler took his life as a result of bullying):
Jane Clementi, mother of Tyler Clementi and co-founder of the Tyler Clementi Foundation, is dedicated to ending online and offline bullying in schools, workplaces and faith communities. Jane will share her personal story of loss as she speaks out about the pain and destruction caused by harassment. Jane is bold to tell such a personal story and believes her family's story can change hearts and minds. Jane believes that everyone should be allowed to live and thrive in an environment based on respect and dignity for our differences and our shared humanity.
Tickets are $25.00 per person and include a buffet dinner.
