Fearless Parent’s much anticipated and coveted “A Conversation about Childhood Vaccination” event at the Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ on 1/24/17 was everything we hoped for. We’re happy to share highlights, including the program and lots of photos now (scroll down) and hopefully video very soon. Please comment below if you’d like to share feedback or stories. And we’re happy to include your pics — send ’em over!

What happened?

Four hundred people — parents, professionals, activists, speakers, exhibitors, donors, and volunteers — said: “Yes. We want this.” The event sold out three months in advance, with 100 on the standby list. Hurricane gusts, annoying hail, incessant rain, a closed airport… nothing could keep this event from happening.

We lit up a local theater with truth and beauty. The venue was alive with information, support, hope, compassion, and love. Everywhere we looked, people were smiling, nodding, laughing, crying, sharing stories, helping, giving, and holding each other up. Eyes were opened and everyone was so moved. It was an extraordinary celebration of community.
