110th Ohio PTA Annual Convention and Exhibition
April 8th – April 10th, at the DoubleTree Hotel, in Columbus, Ohio
Paula has studied and practiced social change extensively and believes that real and sustainable change happens when people come together at the grassroots level around seemingly simple, yet powerful actions that shift the narrative and culture of what is acceptable. Paula is a firm believer that hope can counter apathy and strives to provide positive solutions to reduce gun violence. Paula leads the national outreach and program strategy for the organization with the goal of bringing Sandy Hook Promise’s prevention actions and resources to schools, youth serving organizations, and communities across the country.
After the tragic death of her son Dylan, who was one of 20 first-graders killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Nicole dedicated herself to working for change so that other families might be spared the pain of losing a loved one to gun violence. An eloquent writer and public speaker, Nicole has become an important advocate for the need to turn tragedy into transformation through love. She is focused on bringing people together in honest dialogue and searching for innovative solutions in the areas of mental health, school safety, community building and gun safety. In addition to her work with Sandy Hook Promise, Nicole and her husband also run Dylan’s Wings of Change, a foundation that helps children with autism reach their full potential. Nicole resides in Newtown with her family.
