I am honored to tell you that I will receive the Peter Yarrow Award at the
— Monday, May 19, 2014, Hilton St. Louis Frontenac, St. Louis, MO —
The First Annual St Louis HateBraker Hero Awards was an electrifying experience, and we promise even more on Monday, May 19, 2014, when we’ll spotlight and honor more heroic role models of moral courage, post-traumatic growth, and leadership.
We can’t reveal everything yet, but we can announce that this year’s master of ceremonies will be SUZANNE YATIM ASLAM, last year’s HateBraker Hero and international child advocate.
Among this year’s Heroes:
When LENORE PEPPER, St Louis icon of wisdom, generosity and business success, was six years old a family in the neighborhood brutally beat her, and called her anti-semitic names. How did she manage to survive such hate? “I decided to kill it with kindness,” she explains. “Anything I can do to help make things better, I want to do. Anything.”
The Peter Yarrow Award will be presented to fifteen-year-old LIZZIE SIDER who was named “Who to Watch” in 2013 by the Country Music Association. Lizzie always loved to sing, but mean girls used to ask her to sing for them and then laugh and run away.
One day Lizzie stopped crying and found her power in words and music. She often performs at three schools a day, traveling all over the country, comforting kids of all ages who have been teased and bullied. Her signature song, “Butterfly,” about her transformation from victim to leader made the Top 40 on Nashville’s Music Row Chart.
When MORGAN KEENAN was fifteen, he was kicked out of his house by his parents the same day they learned he was gay. Homeless all through high school, he managed to keep his grades up and played on the high school football team. His strength and leadership continued to flourish in college and graduate school. Today Morgan works with GSA, helping LGBTQA teenagers combat bullying and oppression in their schools and communities.
WILLIE DYSON was left at a hospital when he was six weeks old. When found, he was not expected to live. A white couple foster-parented him and later adopted him, loving him and healing him completely. His professional music video, “No Color,” captures the raw and real story of his own struggle and his effort to build social support for inter-racial adoption.

NOBODY HAS THE POWER TO RUIN YOUR DAY” Champion Wraps Sunshine
State Run With National Anthem Performance At Miami Marlins’ MLB Game April 1
Lizzie Sider at Crystal Lake Elementary School
Nashville, TN (March 10, 2014) – LIZZIE SIDER‘s impassioned bully prevention campaign, NOBODY HAS THE POWER TO RUIN YOUR DAY, continues to connect with kids, tweens and teens across Florida this month. During January and February, she visited 65 schools, carrying her message to more than 30,000 students. As a spokesperson for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, Lizzie is uniquely qualified for her mission: she was teased and ridiculed during her elementary school years. During these presentations the 15-year-old singer/songwriter tells her story, counsels that “nobody has the power to ruin your day,” and asks kids to work together to prevent the tragedy that is bullying. The rising star ends each 30 to 40-minute appearance with a performance of her Top 40 Country hit song/video “Butterfly” (a song about Lizzie’s experiences she wrote with Jamie O’Neal), the distribution of awareness bracelets, and a long autograph session. Including last fall’s 100-school California assembly tour, Lizzie has reached a total of 70,000-plus students with her powerful message.
