Investigate allegations of rape leveled against UND athletes.

Women work hard to get into and to remain in school, and we become an unparalleled resource to our communities upon graduation. Does the University of Notre Dame value and respect female students, or is the success of their football team more important to the officials at UND than the safety (and lives!) of female students? Rev. John Jenkins, we want to know what happened to Lizzy Seeberg and to the survivor who has yet to choose to speak out. We want the women in our lives to be successful and safe, and as the president of the University of Notre Dame those must also be your top priorities. We are asking you to launch a legitimate investigation into these allegations against your athletes, and see that any and all criminals face the appropriate consequences for their crimes under the law.

      Because sexual assault happens way too often, and has almost happened to me many times. It is terrifying and I personally know 6 girls who have been raped and have been told by friends not to report it. A school administration should NEVER tell a girl what she is feeling is wrong, even if it is a star football player.

      Women need to trust that they will be heard and believed in these horrific experiences.
