Brenda Tracy to attend signing of historic bill with Pres. Obama
PORTLAND, Ore. —
Brenda Tracy, the woman who was raped by two Oregon State football players in 1998, will be present during a "bill of rights" for survivors of sex assault signing with President Barack Obama.
The men Tracy accused of rape were arrested but never charged. In recent months, she's been petitioning the NCAA to ban sexually violent athletes. She has also spoken with Mike Riley, who was the head football coach at Oregon State during her rape. He's now the head coach of the University of Nebraska football team, which is just one of a handful of groups Tracy has spoken with regarding sex assault on college campuses.
This week, she announced she'll be attending a bill signing in the nation's capital with Pres. Obama.
The federal "Survivors' Bill of Rights" is designed to make it easier for rape survivors to come forward.
