Keynote Speaker
Jamie Nabozny grew up in Ashland, a small town in northern Wisconsin on the south shore of Lake Superior. HIs life changed drastically when he was targeted in middle school for being gay. His years of harassment ended with a beating that put him in hospital and required abdominal surgery. Jamie then moved to Minneapolis. After realizing that many other young people endured similar fates he decided to fight back. With the help of Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, Jamie won a Landmark Lawsuit in Federal court that establishes that all young people including those who are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgendered deserve a safe educational experience. The Southern Poverty Law Center produced a documentary titled “Bullied” that chronicles his life. Jamie now speaks out for the millions of kids bullied in our schools every day. Jamie was named a Defender of Human Rights by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

Jamie currently lives in Plymouth, Minnesota with his husband, Bo Nabozny, and their four adopted sons. Jamie is the VP of Community Engagement at Sunrise Banks.
