Do you remember the murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie?

He was a gay University of Wyoming student who was robbed, beaten and tied to a fence in 1998, a crime that drew national attention.

The Shepard Symposium on Social Justice starts today and runs through Saturday, March 31 at the University of Wyoming. Keynote speaker Tim Wise begins the Shepard Symposium at 4:30 p.m. in the Union Ballroom at the University of Wyoming. You can stream some of the activities using this link.
