Back on October 13, 2016, I shared with you the anniversary remembrance of the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard. Today she’s speaking out against hate.
The mother of Matthew Shepard ― a gay student who was brutally attacked and left to die in a 1998 hate crime in Laramie, Wyoming ― is warning voters about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s bullying.
In an ad released by the pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC Priorities USA, Judy Shepard speaks about Trump’s violent rhetoric on the campaign trail.
“I’ve seen what can happen as the result of hate,” Shepard says in the video, released weeks after the 18th anniversary of her son’s death.
