Our Partnership with Bridie Farrell

​​Bridie Farrell is a nationally ranked speed skater who competed in Olympic Trials and held three American records.

At the age of 31, she disclosed that beginning at age 15, she was sexually abused by her then 33-year-old coach, an Olympic silver medalist. Sixteen years after the abuse ended, Bridie became an outspoken advocate to end child sexual abuse.

Supporting Survivors of Sexual Abuse

In her efforts to end child sex abuse, Bridie formed America Loves Kids, a nonprofit that educates the public about child sexual abuse, connects survivors to resources, and works to improve related laws and policies. Bridie worked with lawmakers to spearhead legislation in New York (the Child Victims Act) and Arizona (H.B. 2466), both of which substantially extended the time for survivors in those states to take civil action against their abusers.
