Our featured speaker will be Kyle Richard.
In 2017, the graduate & former 2x captain for SUNY Cortland Football (‘20), intervened with his friends in what was potentially an act of sexual assault. When Kyle confronted the assailant in the aftermath, the assailant shot him twice, leaving him doubtful to return to the field. Fortunately, he completed a comeback & led the Red Dragons for the next 2 years.
When his story began to spread, he received messages from an array of sexual & domestic violence survivors. This sparked his desire to transition from the linebacker role, to the role of helping organizations like It’s On Us & the sports world tackle issues of violence through prevention work.
