Local trial lawyers are coming together on May 12 to present a webinar aimed at teaching high school students the dangers of distracted driving. The webinar is being put on by EndDD.org in conjunction with the Anapol Weiss Foundation and Zoom Video Communications.
The webinar, entitled “End Distracted Driving: Keeping Ourselves and Loved Ones Safe After COVID-19,” will take place Tuesday, May 12, at 10am PT/1pm ET. Hosted by Joel Feldman, founder the nonprofit EndDD.org and partner at Anapol Weiss in Philadelphia, PA, the webinar content will focus on the dangers of distracted driving and shifting our perspective to avoid it, particularly ahead of our world’s return to normalcy post-COVID-19.
Feldman founded End Distracted Driving (EndDD) back in 2009, when his daughter Casey was tragically killed by a distracted driver. Since then, Feldman has given more than 750 distracted driving presentations to nearly 200,000 students and adults.
Each year, Feldman’s trial lawyer colleagues around the U.S. and Canada visit their local high schools as EndDD volunteers and deliver end distracted driving presentations to students. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic causing the world to shut down this year, these presentations are not able to take place this spring semester.
Trial lawyers have since come together to bring the EndDD presentation into the digital learning age, working with Zoom Video Communications to broadcast the presentation as a webinar to high school students across both countries.
“Joel’s presentation is unlike any I’ve ever seen – it truly speaks to the teenage mind and challenges us to look at our driving behaviors from a new perspective,” said [your name], attorney at [your firm]. “I’m grateful we were able to pull this webinar together in these crazy times, so students don’t have to go a year without hearing this important message.”

EndDD.org is a nonprofit organization founded in 2009 with the goal of ending distracted driving. A project of the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation, EndDD.org was founded by Casey’s parents, Joel Feldman and Dianne Anderson.
