Sandy Hook Speaker

David Cole Wheeler’s son, Benjamin Andrew Wheeler, was one of 20 first-graders murdered Dec. 14, 2012, at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Wheeler’s gift is his willingness to share his journey of grief and his effort to make sense of a tragedy that seems senseless. His talk offers a sharp and thoughtful analysis, helping his audience to pull back the frame and see how cultural and societal change must be the driving force to protect future generations of children from the threat of gun violence. Wheeler was recently included in articles published in The New York Times and New York Magazine, and in June 2014 he addressed the United Nations’ Fifth Biennial Meeting of States on behalf of the International Action Network on Small Arms in support of their Programme of Action.
