    Keynote: Presented by Nicole Hockley, Sandy Hook Promise
    Know the Signs to Prevent Violence 

    Nicole Hockley


    After her youngest son, Dylan, was murdered in his first-grade classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, Nicole Hockley made a solemn promise to do all she could to protect children from gun violence. She co-founded Sandy Hook Promise with a mission to end school shootings by teaching students and educators to "know the signs" of potential violence and when and how to safely intervene.

    Join her to hear more about how to recognize the warning signs of a person who may be in crisis and ways to help, as well as no-cost, research-informed programs and practices that are proven to create safer schools.
