Ms. Farrell Goes to Washington
CEO & Co-Founder of NY Loves Kids, Bridie Farrell took the organization on the road to Washington D.C. in April 2018. Farrell was invited by Senator John Thune of South Dakota to testify in front of the United States Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, Insurance, and Data Security. Alongside survivors of Dr. Larry Nassar, Farrell presented about the failings of the United State Olympic Committee (USOC) and offered suggestions on how the USOC could improve to keep athletes safe.
Years before #MeToo Bridie Farrell bravely publicly spoke about the child sexual abuse she endured while an up and coming short track speed skating, under the jurisdiction of US Speed Skating and The United States Olympic Committee (USOC).
