Our keynote speaker this year is Leah Parsons. For survivors of sexual abuse, grief can be paralyzing. Rehtaeh Parsons experienced this first-hand: she was only 17 years old when she died by suicide after being sexually assaulted and cyber abused. Her mother, Leah, also had to deal with debilitating grief after her daughter’s death. Not only was she learning to cope with an unbearable loss – at the same time, she had to be a voice for her daughter as her story unfolded in headlines all over the world.

By undertaking this journey, Leah has learned to face life’s challenges with a new outlook, equipped with the tools for resilience, forgiveness and understanding. Leah travelled from a place of grief to a place of grace, and at this year’s Little Warriors Be Brave Luncheon, she’ll bring her inspiring message of hope and courage to everyone in attendance.
