Between 2017 and 2021 multiple members of Team USA's Women's Wheelchair Basketball Team filed reports of emotional misconduct and harassment against Trooper Johnson with the NWBA and the US Center for SafeSport. In 2018 an official team letter was written and sent to the NWBA Board of Directors to report this abuse. At least 8 women have publicly come forward with their experiences of abuse under Trooper Johnson.

Despite these reports of abuse, the NWBA rehired Trooper Johnson as the head coach of Team USA's Women's Wheelchair Basketball Team.

This type of behavior should not be rewarded with the opportunity to represent Team USA on the international stage. Our nation's top athletes deserve better.

This petition calls on the National Wheelchair Basketball Association to remove Trooper Johnson as the head coach of Team USA's Women's Wheelchair Basketball Team, and the reopening of the hiring process to find a more qualified candidate to lead Team USA's Women's Wheelchair Basketball Team.
