Featured in the award winning documentary, Bully, on The Today Show, and most recently on CNN: The Bully Effect with Anderson Cooper, Kirk Smalley will be coming to Central Wisconsin to share his story and offer education and tools that will prevent his personal tragedy, the suicide of his eleven-year-old son, Ty, from happening to another child and family. 


In response to his unimaginable tragedy he and his wife founded Stand for the Silent, which exits as a platform to allow for change to happen across the nation.  Kirk's mission is to continue to change kids' lives and bring awareness to bullying and the real devastation it causes.  Kirk has traveled to hundreds of schools and spoken to thousands of students.  In May of 2010, The Smalley's were invited to the White House where they met with President Obama and the First Lady in the nations first ever White House conference on bullying.  


Please don't miss this chance to be a part of something that has the power to educate our youth and change our schools.


"Everything starts with one and builds up. One by one, two by two, and eventually we have an Army.  If we all do it together, we will change the world." - Kirk Smalley
