Courage to Speak® Drug Prevention Presentation

Courage to Speak Presentation

Details: In a riveting and thought-provoking presentation, nationally renowned speaker, Ginger Katz, shares the story of her son Ian’s losing battle with drugs. Through her presentation, students and parents begin to recognize the telltale signs of alcohol and other drug use and the veils behind which those signs hide: anger, denial, fear, and pain.

Ginger Katz shows audiences how to avoid the heartache she suffered when drugs took her son Ian’s life when he was just 20 years old. Since then, she has reached hundreds of thousands of people telling Ian’s story and speaking honestly about the silence surrounding her son’s addiction. Told with quiet intensity and rigorous emotional integrity, Ginger’s words ask young people to have the courage to speak out and parents to listen, encouraging an honest and open family dialogue.
