From Hindsight to Foresight
(Michele Gay & Alissa Parker)
The mothers of Josephine Gay and Emilie Parker, killed in the Sandy Hook School tragedy, and co-founders of Safe and Sound Schools, share their stories and lessons that sparked this national movement.
Mother, educator, and co-founder of Safe and Sound Schools, Michele Gay chose to take action after losing her daughter Josephine Grace on December 14, 2012. Since that time, Michele has channeled her work as an advocate, improving safety and security in schools and communities across our country.
Now a nationally and internationally recognized public speaker and school safety expert, Michele reaches audiences and consults with all levels of community institutions — schools; municipalities; houses of worship; educational and public safety leadership; state and federal governments; law enforcement agencies; and top news media sources. Through her work, and always with a goal of helping others increase the safety within their own communities, Michele shares her personal experiences and the lessons she has learned.
