An Evening with Judy & Dennis Shepard

2018 marks 20 years since the tragic murder of Matthew Shepard, a 21-year old college student in Laramie, Wyoming. Matthew’s death brought national attention to hate crimes and inspired the launch of the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

Join in for cocktails and conversation in an intimate setting with Matthew’s parents, Judy & Dennis Shepard along with Barbara Poma, CEO & Founder of onePULSE Foundation. The Shepards will share their two-decade journey of advocating for LGBTQ safety resources and their successful activism that resulted in the Matthew Shepard & James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act (2009).
