USAG on non-disclosure agreements

USA Gymnastics:

… USA Gymnastics will not endorse, agree, enforce, propose or otherwise support the use of non-disclosure or other similar forms of agreements that are intended to prevent survivors from speaking about their experiences in conjunction with any claims of abuse.

USA Gymnastics is committed to do everything it can to support its athletes and others, who want to tell their stories without restraint, and these types of agreements can undermine confidence in our commitment.

The policy of USA Gymnastics is to encourage an open and transparent discussion of these issues, recognizing that only through such openness can perpetrators be identified, and potential victims of abuse be protected.  …
