Petition: Ask Steubenville Principal to fire Coach who covered up rape
From Rachelle J. Suissa, Vice-President, Brooklyn-Queens NOW
In light of the recent testimonies and sentences of the two young men involved in the rape of a 16 year old girl from West Virginia, I've put together an online petition to the Principal of Steubenville High School, asking him to fire Coach Saccoccia. Coach Saccoccia had received several text messages from Trent Mays about what had happened that night, and chose not to report it and do nothing about it. That is a failure of leadership on his part--he should not be allowed to work with high school students. The link to the petition is below: please sign it and spread far and wide to friends and family members!
