I Am...when being yourself is enough

I AMwhen being yourself is enough is our way of joining the cause to eradicate these statistics. Everyone deserves to know they are valuable, unique, and worthy. Everyone deserves to celebrate who they are, just as they are.

This inspiring evening will also feature 16-year-old folk singer Hayley Reardon.

Hayley was recently featured in the Boston Globe Magazine as one of 2012 Bostonians of the Year.
