Presenter Information:

Army of Survivors – The Army of Survivors is the only national organization advocating for and supporting child athlete survivors of sexual violence. We focus on these survivors because their numbers are staggering.Our organization was created by a group of more than 40 survivors of sexual violence. We are a diverse pool of athletes who have competed at all levels: gymnasts, divers, runners, softball players, volleyball players, and more. Our combined history and experiences allow us to raise awareness of the systemic problem of sexual abuse against athletes. Our goal is to end sexual assault against young athletes by ensuring perpetrators and enablers are held accountable, creating transparency in reporting, building an environment in which athletes do not fear retaliation when reporting abuse, and advocating for change to protect survivors.
