Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine: Community Event and Film Screening

  •  December 9, 2014
     6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Please join Facing History for a special screening of the award-winning film Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine. The powerful documentary tells the story of Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old gay man murdered in Laramie, Wyoming in October, 1998. His murder made headlines around the world and set the stage for historic anti-hate crime legislation. Directed by a close personal friend and produced by a former Facing History student, the film examines the dangers of hatred and intolerance through a truly personal lens. Following the screening, we will be in conversation with a panel about the role that we all, especially parents, can play in shaping inclusive schools and communities.
