Resilient Chats with Heather Martin, Columbine Survivor & Rebels Project

January 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Throughout the school year we will be hosting bi-monthly topic focused discussion groups led by a different community member, Center faciliator, and/or licensed professional.

Our next special guest is Heather Martin is a Columbine survivor and co-founder of The Rebels Project, named after the Columbine Rebels. On April 20, 1999, Heather returned home physically uninjured, but the effects of trauma she experienced impacted her life for many years.

Meet Heather

Heather Martin was two days away from her 18th birthday when the shooting occurred during her senior year at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. After barricading in a small office for three hours, a SWAT group rescued her and the other students. Heather returned home physically uninjured, but the effects of the trauma she experienced that day continued to impact her in the following years. She is a co-founder of The Rebels Project, named after the Columbine mascot, that seeks to support survivors of trauma resulting from school shootings and other traumatic incidents. Heather advocates for informed responses to traumatic events from the perspective of a survivor. She currently resides in Colorado and teaches English at a high school in Aurora, CO.
