Dingell Statement on USA Gymnastics CEO Departure

September 4, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, US Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) issued the following statement on the departure of USA Gymnastics CEO Kerry Perry:

“Our first responsibility is to protect children and during her short tenure as CEO, Perry was never transparent about what was occurring, her work, or what she was doing to change the culture at USA Gymnastics. There is still a lack of urgency behind addressing how we protect young people from physical and emotional abuse while maintaining the amateur status that allows young people to compete. Congress has a responsibility to ensure we are protecting all amateur athletes and determine what changes need to be made to protect the opportunities that these sports provide.”
