#11forJacob: A Movement of Positive Change

Course Description

The #11forJacob movement was born out of a need to shift the focus from how Jacob Wetterling died to how he truly lived. We honor his memory by asking others to live out the 11 traits that Jacob exemplified: Be fair, Be kind, Be understanding, Be honest, Be thankful, Be a good sport, Be a good friend, Be joyful, Be generous, Be gentle with others, and Be positive. This presentation walks through some of what was learned during the abduction/trial process and is more narrative/less academic than other presentations.
