Keynote Speakers:

  • Judge Enrique Camarena Jr., son of fallen DEA Special Agent Kiki Camarena, whose death led to the creation of the Red Ribbon program. DEA Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena was kidnapped, tortured and murdered for his work in the fight against illegal drugs.

  • Becky Savage, president of 525 Foundation, shares her deeply personal story of turning grief into action after losing two sons to accidental opioid overdoses in the same night.

  • Brandon Novak catapulted to stardom at a young age as a professional skateboarder, traveling the world with the likes of Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, and Bam Margera. Brandon was the first pro skater to ever be endorsed by Gatorade at the age of just 15. Brandon also battled heroin addiction for more than twenty years, eventually ending up homeless on the streets of Baltimore. Now, with nearly four years sober, Brandon has gone on to author the New York Times bestselling memoir, Dreamseller, and he travels the country speaking on his inspirational story of recovery.
