Saam: An Evening With Brenda Tracy

PSU Women's Resource Center says
Join in an evening with local legacy, Brenda Tracy as she shares her story, road to legislative advocacy in Oregon, and hopes for campus solutions. Brenda Tracy is a mother, survivor, policy activist, nurse and advocate.

In 1998, Tracy, a single mother to two young kids at the time, was drugged and sexually assaulted by four players on the Oregon State Beavers football team. Their coach at the time was Mike Riley. The individuals were arrested but never charged in connection to the case. The evidence of the case was destroyed before the statute of limitations had expired. Therefore, no criminal charges were ever filed.

In 2014, Portland sports columnist John Canzano published a series of articles in The Oregonian, detailing all aspects of Brenda's story.

Since then, Tracy has helped pass a number of laws in Oregon, including one that extends the statute of limitations for serious cases of sexual assault. For more information about Brenda, her work in Oregon, and the advocacy with the NCAA visit her site:
