Four fathers that each lost a child at Sandy Hook Elementary School will speak at Bucknell University on Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m. in the Elaine Langone Center Forum. This moderated discussion is part of activities being held for Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Bucknell.
This event is open to the public and no RSVP is required.
This moderated discussion is titled "Four Fathers, Four Journeys: Sandy Hook — Violence, Loss & a Way Forward." These four fathers — Mark Barden, Ian Hockley, Jeremy Richman and David Wheeler — will offer advice on how to move forward and turn an unimaginable loss into a transformational journey in an effort to help others and advance a collective journey toward a world where the massacre at Sandy Hook could never happen again.
Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Bucknell is a week's worth of programming presented by the President's Diversity Council. The theme of this miniseries is The Violence of Hate, and it is intended to engage our community in a conversation about Dr. King's legacy and philosophies, violence, and ways to address this seemingly intractable problem.
