Attendees must register in advance of the event.


The Anti-Hazing Coalition will host a live nationwide presentation and discussion on Sunday, October 3, 2021. AHC parents will present a program via Zoom and live on Facebook to share their sons’ stories and educate current students about hazing prevention. The program will include Q&A with the parents.

These families each suffered unimaginable loss as a result of fraternity hazing. They are here to share their stories and to challenge ALL fraternity/sorority members to take up the fight to end hazing now. If we are not actively part of solving this problem, then we are responsible for its continued persistence. Whether you’ve been hazed, know that hazing is happening on your campus, or even if you’ve hazed one of your members in the past, we must all actively take part in this solving this problem so that no family has to endure this kind of tragedy. Let’s be the generation of fraternity and sorority members who end hazing once and for all.

Parents scheduled to participate in the program include:

Steve and Rae Ann Gruver, their son Max died after a hazing incident at Louisiana State University

Lianne Kowiak, her son Harrison died after a hazing incident at Lenoir-Rhyne University

Jim and Evelyn Piazza, their son Tim died after a hazing incident at Penn State University
