COMMISSION TO PROTECT YOUTH ATHLETES
WHAT IS THE GAME OVER COMMISISON?
Commission Comprised of National Experts in Child Sex Abuse, Law Enforcement, Academia, Trauma, Sports and Investigative Journalism
The sex abuse investigation centered around Dr. Larry Nassar, team doctor for USA Gymnastics (USAG) and Michigan State University (MSU), is one of the most complex in modern history, involving many institutions, coaches, and adults—all of whom failed to appropriately protect hundreds of children from sex abuse. A total of 156 women and girls testified against Larry Nassar at his 2017-18 criminal trial, but 265 have come forward so far. Experts believe there are likely more.
This independent commission is investigating all aspects of the systems that enabled Larry Nassar’s abuse, and will examine how they failed, reach conclusions, and issue recommendations to stop child sex abuse in the future. It is composed of the leading experts in the field of child sex abuse from the medical, social science, legal, and public policy arenas, each of whom is donating their time pro bono to the project.
Key components of the commission include:
- Fact-Finding, Data Collection
- Creation of Publicly Available, Searchable Database of All Information
- Legal and Policy Review by Legal Experts in the United States
- Public Participation and Transparency
Upon completion of the fact finding, data collection, and public hearings, the Larry Nassar abuse investigation commission will compose and release its findings to the public and policymakers. All materials gathered and testimony obtained will be archived and made available to the public.
