Fred Guttenberg, author of Find the Helpers, will participate in an inauguration event for President-Elect Joe Biden on January 17th!

This event will be presented and hosted by the National Children’s Campaign (NCC), a group of youth activists from around the country. “The NCC wants to make one of the most vulnerable populations a priority: children,” Noelle Dutch, NCI Committee co-chair tells Parentology. “As a new administration comes into office, we feel it’s the perfect time to center kids in policy discussions.” (Parentology.com)

“The 90-minute presentation, co-hosted by NCI members Rani Chor, 16, from Los Angeles and Madison Pina, a 19-year-old sophomore at Howard University, will feature messages from myriad guests.” (Parentology.com)

The free, virtual celebration will be streamed live on the event’s Facebook page. Registration can be completed on Eventbrite or Facebook.

What 9/11 and Parkland Taught Me About Recovery, Purpose, and Hope

Life changed forever on Valentine’s Day 2018. What was to be a family day celebrating love turned into a nightmare. Thirty-four people were shot at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Jaime Guttenberg, a fourteen-year-old with a huge heart, was the second to last victim. That she and so many of her fellow students were struck down in cold blood galvanized many to action, including Jaime’s father Fred who has become an activist dedicated to passing common sense gun safety legislation.

Fred was already struggling with deep personal loss. Four months earlier his brother Michael died of 9/11 induced pancreatic cancer. He had been exposed to so much dust and chemicals at Ground Zero, the damage caught up with him. Michael battled heroically for nearly five years and then died at age fifty.
