Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BOCA RATON, Fla. - Mar 21, 2017 - The Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center is proud to present the Shine Like a Star Luncheon featuring Keynote Speaker Monica Lewinsky. The event benefits the Levis JCC Helene & Roy Schwedelson Special Needs Department and Children & Families Supported by Levis JCC Scholarship Funds. Judy Levis Markhoff is Honorary Chair; Marisa Baker and Elyssa Kupferberg are Co-Chairs.
WHO: Keynote Speaker, Monica Lewinsky is a social activist in the battle against online harassment – advocating for a safer social media environment. As a public speaker, writer, and contributor to Vanity Fair, she addresses such topics as survival, resilience, digital reputation and equality. Overnight, at just 24 years old, she went unwillingly from being an entirely private individual to a public figure on the global stage. Being at the center of a legal, political and media maelstrom nearly destroyed her; her survival – despite the odds – is a compelling and inspiring story. Monica is an advocate for a society that honors inclusion, tolerance and fairness. With a deeply personal understanding of the devastation isolation and intolerance can bring, her story is one that transcends demographics or specific groups. She shows us that the way we treat one another shapes our own lives. Her experiences with bullying and her survival in a hostile and very public landscape of humiliation will resonate with anyone who has felt separate, alone or different and will highlight that those differences are often what truly connect us rather than separate us.
