Fundraiser for the Lauren Dunne Astley Memorial Foundation, October 21

astleylogo5On October 21st, the LDAMF will be hosting a private movie premier  “Escalation”—a powerful and emotionally engaging 40 minute film that educates young people about violence and empowers them to work or change. Escalation is a curriculum-based movie that the LDAMF will be utilizing to bring into high schools around the state. This is a film you should not miss. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the LDAMF program.  (Escalation trailer online here.)

  • The LDAMF mission is to promote dynamic educational programs, particularly those in the areas of the development of healthy teen relationships, the arts, and community service.
  • At the heart of our work is a commitment to the reduction of future violence, pain and loss and the promotion of more rewarding relationships. As Lauren liked to say, We can fix this!

You may have seen recently that Robert Kraft and the New England Patriots have joined forces with Attorney General Maura Healey to support domestic and sexual violence prevention and advocacy in Massachusetts. Just last week they announced a new multi-faceted initiative that will focus on education and training, especially among teens. This is a movement for young people and we all need to join. This is something that we should all be informed about for the young people that grace our lives each day.

It is my sincere hope that you will join the movement on October 21, 6:309:30pm.  Seating is limited, so sign up today at
