Petition to USA Swimming Board

Scroll down if you want to read the original petition.

Updated 3/2/18: I have sent the letter individually to every USA Swimming Board member. .

So far, the following USA Swimming Board Members have responded

Clark Hammond, Southern Zone Director (Non-coach)- Acknowledged receipt of the letter via e-mail

John Roy, Southern Zone Director (Coach) Called me directly to acknowledge receipt.

John Bradley, Central Zone Director (Coach) Wrote a detailed respond which you can find here.

Yesterday, 2/22, both Susan Woessner and Pat Hogan "resigned" from USA Swimming. In the case of Woessner, we got some information about why. In the case of Hogan, there was not.

Scrubbing Woessner and Hogan was a good first step to improving the culture. However, before we begin designing solutions for moving forward, we need to know what the problem is. 

Here is a list of those who have already signed the below petition.

Original Post:

February 20th, I wrote an open letter to USA Swimming. I received an overwhelming positive response. One part of that response asked me for a way that people could show public support of the letter.

Having never conducted an online petition before, I had some reservations. I have seen people choose not to sign online petitions because of rightful concerns about how their e-mail would be used.

So here is my promise to you: if you sign this petition I will not use your contact information for anything unrelated to this letter. This website is my personal website, and I do use it for marketing my personal services. I will not contact you about these services- I have used this space to advocate specifically on this issue and will continue to do so.

I will tabulate results and send them to members of the USA Swimming Board.

So without further ado, here is where you can sign and signal your support for the open letter:
