LYNCHBURG, Va. – A student-led movement to raise awareness about sexual misconduct is getting support from Liberty University’s president.
People in Lynchburg have been using teal ribbons as a call to action.
Jerry Prevo told students at convocation Friday that Liberty should be a safe place for everyone.
“We want you to feel safe. We don’t want any sexual harassment or sexual abuse. I don’t, and I’ve told the department that deals with that. I said, ‘you take every complaint seriously, and you deal with it seriously.”
As we reported, 12 women filed a lawsuit against LU, claiming leaders created an unsafe campus environment and failed to properly address sexual violence.
