STOMP Out Suicide

  • Michigan Theatre of Jackson 124 North Mechanic Street Jackson, MI, 49201 United States (map)

Help us honor the lives lost to suicide and celebrate the survivors! This annual event spreads awareness and educates our community on the impact suicide has had in Jackson.

At this year’s event, we are featuring Jamie Nabozny, a school safe advocate. His life changed drastically when he was bullied in middle school for being gay. After realizing that many other young people endured similar fates he decided to fight back. With the help of Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, Jamie won a landmark lawsuit in federal court that establishes that all young people including those who are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgendered deserve a safe educational experience. The Southern Poverty Law Center produced a documentary titled “Bullied” that chronicles his life. Jamie now speaks out for the millions of kids bullied in our schools every day. Jamie was named a Defender of Human Rights by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.
