Courage to Speak Foundation, Norwalk

At Norwalk's West Rocks Middle School students learn about the dangers of teen drug abuse and addiction from a Norwalk family that lost their son Ian to drugs. To break the silence that often surrounds such a loss, Ian's Mom Ginger Katz wrote a book for kids in which Ian's dog Sunny the Beagle, tells the story of how his young master was lost to him because of drug addiction. Ginger Katz now travels much of the country conducting drug prevention programs for young people and parents and has developed the Courage to Speak Drug Prevention Education curriculum for students and parents.
