After Joe Bell lost his son Jadin in February, he made a drastic decision. He quit his job and began a trek across the country. The trip started in his hometown of La Grande, Oregon and he says he intends to take approximately two years, ending in New York City. Along the way, Bell says he hopes to bring attention to bullying in schools and creating better resources for LGBT teens.
We first checked in with Joe Bell in late April, two days after his journey had begun. He joins us from his current stop in Denver, Colorado to share updates and highlights from his experiences speaking at various organizations like schools and churches.
