Join Gatepath at the Power of Possibilities Event Oct 26

 

The Power of Possibilities is Community Gatepath's annual event where we honor those we serve, our volunteers and community leaders. Our keynote speakers this year are Lee Hirsch, director of the documentary, Bully, and Alex Libby a young boy with autism featured in the documentary. Alex's daily struggles at school are heart wrenching as bullies target him because of his differences. Lee Hirsch put faces, names, and stories behind the 13 million kids who are reportedly bullied each year. Bully received international acclaim and has influenced discussion and debate on the issue of bullying. Confronting bullying's most tragic outcome, the film follows five kids and their families as they are faced with the painful issue. Lee and Alex will share their journey as well as discuss the Bully Project, a social action campaign to end bullying and the efforts underway in San Mateo County.

Volunteer for this great event, help greet people at the door and sell raffle tickets.

 

 

When: Friday, October 26th 11am- 1pm

Where: Sofitel San Francisco Bay- 223 Twin Dolphin Drive, Redwood City
