Sexual Assault and Bystander Intervention: My Personal Story 
Kyle Richard
In the summer of 2017, Malverne, Long Island College junior Kyle Richard was at a party when he heard a sexual assault in progress. Battering down the bathroom door, he rescued a woman from an attempted rape. Kyle was shot three times as he attempted to subdue the perpetrator. Fortunately, he overcame his injuries and returned to SUNY Cortland, where he is captain of its football team. In addition to being a college student, he speaks about sexual violence and standing up for what is right:  “This stuff is happening every day … hopefully, my generation is the generation that really puts into perspective how much this has to change.” Kyle has received the NFL-sponsored Joe Biden Courage Award and the 2018 Capital One Orange Bowl FWAA Courage Award.
12:30 p.m., CCB 252-3
