Ginger Katz alongside Larry Katz

Ginger Katz, CEO and Founder of the Courage to Speak Foundation and author of Sunny’s Story, a drug prevention book, alongside Larry Katz Co-Founder.

In a riveting and thought-provoking presentation, nationally-renowned speaker Ginger Katz, shares the story of her son Ian’s losing battle with drugs from 8th grade that started with cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana, through his junior year in college where he then died from a heroin and prescription drug overdose. Through her presentation, she implores parents to teach their children to follow the positive passions in their lives and to make healthy decisions. Ginger’s words ask parents to listen to their instincts, avoid the trap of denial, and pay attention to early signs of concern.
