Please sign our petition to protect children from sexual abuse.

In March of 2017 we appeared on CBS 60 Minutes and told the nation our very personal stories of physical, emotional and sexual abuse inflicted upon us by USA Gymnastics and their former National Team Doctor Larry Nassar.

Since then more than 140 girls and women have come forward to report alleged incidents of sexual abuse that are strikingly similar to ours.

The current leadership of USA Gymnastics failed in its responsibility to protect child athletes from sexual predators and failed to alert authorities to reports of sexual abuse as required by law.

Olympic level gymnastics has become a big business funded by some of America’s largest corporations and overseen by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).

Change is being made in the leadership in major companies when sex abuse survivors step forward and say, “#Metoo,” but this hasn’t happened yet in USA Gymnastics.

USA Gymnastics Chairman Paul Parilla, Vice Chairman Jay Binder and Treasurer Bitsy Kelley have focused their attention on money and medals while USA Gymnastics is attempting to cover up the largest child sex abuse scandal in the history of sports. They must be replaced by people who will put the health and safety of athletes first.

Please sign this petition now. Demand a leadership change at USA Gymnastics.
