Sheldon Kennedy is a Family Service Kent Inspirational Speaker
Submitted By Martin Steele on Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Family Service Kent is excited to bring Sheldon Kennedy, Former NHL Player and author of “Why I Didn’t Say Anything” to the Kiwanis Theater in Chatham on Thursday, March 22, 2018.

Sheldon Kennedy skated for three teams in his eight-year NHL career, but he is likely best known for his courageous decision to charge his Major Junior Hockey League coach with sexual assault for the abuse he suffered while a teenager under his care. Since then, Sheldon has become an unofficial spokesperson for millions of abuse survivors around the world, speaking about the importance of hope for survivors, an end to the stigma surrounding sexual abuse, and his desire to see meaningful penalties given to perpetrators

As a non-profit organization that provides a wide range of counselling and community support services, Family Service Kent appreciates the importance of the message Mr. Kennedy  has to share.  Executive Director, Brad Davis says “The mission of our agency is to support, empower and advocate for individuals and communities to reach their full potential.   With his compelling personal story of personal trauma and influencing positive change, we believe that Sheldon Kennedy embodies the spirit of what we strive to achieve.

Tickets go on sale December 1, 2017 and can be purchased online through cktickets.com or at the Chatham-Kent Ticket Box Office.  General admission tickets are $45. 

For further information about this event, please contact Marjorie Crew at Family Service Kent.
