We are confident that President Obama and the new administration will be our champions. The GLBT community will finally achieve equal rights across the board. It will not happen all at once. Maybe not this year or even this term but it will happen. The Matthew Shepard Foundation will be working toward that goal with you. We all need to work together to make this happen partners in progress not splinter factions.

High School & Community Outreach
The Foundation is proud to announce a new community outreach program. The FBI estimates that more than 7,000 hate crimes occur in the United States each year. Whether we hear about them in the news or read about them in the paper, they become external. Many of us do not acknowledge or understand the role hate plays in our everyday lives. Furthermore, often times we do not consider how we contribute to the problem or what we can do to change it.
This discussion will lead participants on a journey to help them identify how hate manifests itself in their everyday lives and what they can do to stop it. Participants will discuss how individuals contribute to the problem and what they can do to forward the process of replacing hate with understanding, compassion and acceptance.
