COURAGE TO SPEAK has a goal of fostering open communication about the prevention of alcohol and other drug use among young people. This site focuses on Ginger, who has been inspired to speak out by the untimely death of her son, Ian, to whom her effort is dedicated. Since 1996, she has given over 1000 presentations nationally, reaching thousands of middle school, high school, and college students and their parents.

Addressing young people, concerned parents, educators and law enforcement professionals, Ginger tells her son's story. Through it she weaves powerful prevention information and identifies denial as part of the disease. She asks parents to listen and young people to speak out, encouraging an honest, open dialogue between peers and between generations.
