Many of us are eager to respond to the disturbing incidences of suicide deaths which deeply impact our youth, our families, and our entire
community. Our facilitator on March 23 will share his experience of growing up as an OUTSIDER in a society that doesn’t handle difference
well. At this program, we intend to create a comfortable space for people to respectfully share their opinions and ideas about how we can
respond compassionately and effectively to the challenges that face our youth and our communities.
