Join us for our annual Matthew Shepard Memorial Tennis Jam!
Never Forget! This year marks 21 years since Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was brutally attacked and tied to a fence in a field outside of Laramie, WY. and left to die. On October 12, Matt succumbed to his wounds in a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Once again we are holding our immensely popular annual “Tennis Jam” to honor Matt and raise funds for The Matthew Shepard Foundation (MSF).
The Matthew Shepard Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that promotes tolerance and acceptance of all people regardless of sexual orientation, color, religion and culture. The organization's primary mission is to visit schools and community/religious organizations throughout the country to dispel fear, educate and encourage people to embrace and celebrate diversity. The Foundation has successfully lobbied for the extension of the federal hate crime laws to include punishment for crimes committed and motivated by LGBTQ fear and hatred.
Please Read Judy Shepard's Annual Message to MTG.
