Child abduction survivor to speak at UNT

🕐 1 min read

DENTON – Elizabeth Smart, child abduction survivor and advocate, will speak at the University of North Texas Feb. 9 as part of the university’s Distinguished Lecture Series.

Smart’s nine months of captivity led her to becoming one of the strongest, most prominent child abduction advocates of her generation. She was reunited with her family in March 2003 and since then has dedicated her life to being an advocate for victims of abduction and abuse.

With Smart’s lecture regarding overcoming adversity and encouraging her audiences to always fight back, she has been regarded as a beacon of hope for those who are enduring hardships in their own lives.

Smart’s lecture begins at 8 p.m. at UNT’s Union Lyceum located at 1155 Union Circle. Tickets may be purchased online: General admission, $10; UNT students receive one free ticket with student IDs and may by additional for $5 each; UNT faculty, staff and alumni, $8.
