After the Fact, is intended to:
- Confront the facts of the matter: What can we learn about the reality of GLBT teens and their vulnerability to suicide?
- To move toward our own plan of action: What can we do to spread awareness and help toward prevention?
After the Fact aims to be after the fact(s)—in terms of sorting through the data and putting it all together, and we’ll do this using the whole of our Bible and our brain, the whole of our heart, mind and imagination. At the same time, we are determined to act now—before more GLBT teens feel compelled to take their own lives. Because waiting to address this issue until after the fact (until one of our loved ones becomes such a statistic) is far too costly a delay. “If not now, when?”
