As many of you know, in April of this year we recognized an amazing group of women with our 2018 Humanitarian Award. These women chose to confront their abuser, Larry Nassar, and the systems and institutions that enabled him to abuse so many young women and children. The Sister Survivors spoke in court, at rallies, and in hearings as part of their concerted efforts to rid sport of its culture of abuse.
We spoke with one of these Sister Survivors, Trinea Gonczar, in June for our GSD podcast. Trinea is now working with Wayne County SAFE to advocate for other victims of sexual assault, and in the podcast she shares what she has learned about sexual assault and abuse and what all of us can do to prevent it.
We are also delighted to share the highlights from the award ceremony, which includes portions of Kristen Bell's speech and the speeches of the award recipients.
