NFL: Make Washington’s sexual misconduct investigation PUBLIC! Washington Football Team (WFT): Reinstate the cheerleaders and give them a seat at the table!  The NFL must do the right thing and make the sexual misconduct investigation of the WFT public AND hold Dan Snyder accountable for the history of serial sexual harassment within his organization.  The NFL along with the WFT employees, fans, alumni, and cheerleaders should stand up and disallow him from being a part of this historic franchise any longer. Ticket sales are at an all-time low and the name change controversy continues. It’s time to re-engage the fan base and create a winning game-day experience for everyone. This "rebranding" must include feedback and input from the women who have been on the sidelines supporting this team for more than a half-century. In addition, we should all be fighting for the immediate reinstatement of the WFT Cheerleaders (The First Ladies of Football). After a recent legal settlement (stemming from lewd videos that were made for front office staff), the almost 60 year long cheerleading program was canceled. These women aren’t just on the literal sidelines. They support local charities, and visit veterans and sick children in local hospitals. They create incredible value through youth outreach programs and put their lives at risk on overseas military tours to engage with and honor our servicemen and women. This cannot and must not stand.  #NFLforwomensrights #WFTdotherightthing #evolvedontcancel
