Kathy Redmond started the National Coalition Against Violent Athletes when her historic Title IX case against the University of Nebraska was settled in 1997. After learning how to navigate the system that protects athletes and vilifies victims, she made ending athlete violence her life mission. Since the formation of the NCAVA, she has forged herself as a national expert in athlete violence and prevention. Her work has been recognized in the United States Congress, through national organizations and as a consultant to professional, college and high school athletic teams. Ms. Redmond has been a consultant in high profile cases against universities. She also tours the country developing and empowering college and professional athletes to understand and challenge the rape culture in athletics and society and to help them forge healthy relationships.
