Some of Ayres' victims and their families will be there, as well as some therapists who tried to report Dr. Ayres over the years and were thwarted.

If there are any men who have not yet come forward to the police in the Dr. Ayres case, please think about attending this event. There will be a lot of good information.

Belmont is in the San Francisco/Bay area, on the Peninsula
