Campus Safety Conference
Long Beach, CA

The opening keynote on July 31 is titled “Making a Difference in Campus Safety.” They are tributes to the five- and ten-year anniversaries of the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School and Virginia Tech that shook the campus protection community and our nation to its core.

Campus Safety Conference West’s keynotes will take a brief look back at those events from a victim’s and advocate/educator’s perspective to benchmark the progress made over the past decade in school and college safety attitudes, procedures and responses.

Presenters will share perspectives and trends to consider when addressing school and university violence and safety moving forward. The keynotes will be delivered by nationally recognized speakers: Michele Gay, co-founder/executive director of Safe and Sound: A Sandy Hook Initiative; Lisa Hamp, school shooting survivor and speaker;  and Kristina Anderson, executive director of the Koshka Foundation.
