The Courage To Speak!

FAIRFIELD– The Courage to Speak Foundation Presentation Ginger and Larry Katz, Co-Founders of the Courage to Speak® Foundation will be speaking at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, 545 Stratfield Road, Fairfield on Thursday, October 19th at 6:30 PM in the Parish Hall.

The foundation was established in an effort to foster open communication about the prevention of alcohol and other drug abuse among young people. Ginger has been inspired to speak out by the untimely death of her son Ian from a drug overdose.

Ms. Katz will address issues such as warning signs, alcohol and drug prevention, the code of silence and its dangers, addictions and its impact on families, and other important issues. With the number of drug overdose deaths and substance abuse cases on the rise in Connecticut, many families are affected.

If you or someone you know is facing a crisis or wants to be educated, please join us! The presentation is open to parents, students, and community members. For additional information, please visit their website .
