Jane Clementi
Jane Clementi is co-founder of the Tyler Clementi Foundation, which promotes safe, inclusive and respectful social environments in homes, schools, campuses, churches and the digital world for vulnerable youth, LGBT youth and their allies. A native of New Jersey and devoted mother of three sons, Ms. Clementi advocates for parents of LGBT children to speak openly of the love they have for their children, and in doing so impact the world around them and create accepting environments. Since losing her son, Tyler, Jane's spiritual journey has continued to carry and transform her in ways she never would have imagined. She left her church of many years because she felt that, while sitting in the pews of a church that condemned LGBT people, she was herself a bystander to bullying. Jane leads an inspirational life through the unique experience she shares with other parents and speaks passionately about the need to divorce the concept of "sin" from homosexuality.
