Raisman Says NEVER Again by Calling for Independent Investigation
via: GettyRaisman is continuing to carry the torch for future female generations by demanding accountability beyond the trial of Larry Nassar. She is calling for accountability from the Olympic establishment for allegedly creating a culture that enabled these heinous crimes.
