“The Legacy of Matthew Shepard”
October 6 at 7pm in the Special Events Center
Co-sponsored by PRIDE Alliance, the USF Council on Issues of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (CISOGI), and the Gay and Lesbian Alumni Association (GALA)
The brutal murder of 21 year-old college student Matthew Shepard shocked the world in 1998. In the wake of his death, his parents, Dennis and Judy Shepard, established a foundation dedicated to preventing anti-gay hate and to working toward equality for people of all sexual orientations. In 1999, Judy Shepard testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of the Hate Crimes Prevention Act. From the perspective of a mother, she speaks to audiences across the nation about what they can do as individuals and communities to make the world a more accepting place for everyone
