Remembering Matthew Shepard

There have been many great milestones since Matthew's time. But while we look towards the the apex of human rights we need to look back on where we started at and the challenges that come with it. Because at times those same challenges will crop up again. Which is why we need to keep Matthew's spirit with us as we toil through those challenges. Continue reading

Over the years, it has become evident that economic prosperity has fallen short of original promises, while alarming reports of public health decline, potent greenhouse gas leaks, and environmental devastation have bubbled to the surface.
