Join us, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the launch of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, for a conversation with Judy and Dennis Shepard who will talk about their work honoring their son Matthew, whose tragic murder in 1998 brought national attention to hate crimes.

The Shepards will share their 20-year journey of advocating for LGBTQ safety resources and their successful activism that resulted in legislation expanding federal hate crime laws as well as the importance of providing a voice and support for LGBTQ youth.
