Protect high school students from sexual violence & retaliation
This petition had 4,205 supporters
When 15-year-old Camelback High School student Nichole Segay was groped by a fellow track teammate, she and her mother immediately told her coach, who dismissed the incident as a "grab ass game," did not report the incident to his superiors, did not inform Nichole of the official reporting process, and did nothing to punish the offending student, a valued athlete.
Since coming forward in April 2017, Nichole has been subject to months of hostility from her coach and school officials, and she was forced to leave a cross country practice so that the student who violated her consent could practice.
We call on Camelback High School to:
- Issue meaningful punishment for sexual harassment and sexual assault that sends a clear message to students that such behavior will not be tolerated.
- Protect Nichole from retaliation and allow her to train with a different coach.
- Fire and replace the coach who failed his duty as a mandated reporter with someone who deals proactively with sexual violence and treats female athletes with respect.
- Formally apologize to Nichole for mishandling and minimizing the sexual violence she experienced.
