The film team that is bringing the story of cheerleader activism to the screen is presenting an online panel discussion on Thursday, January 7th featuring LVBH client and former Oakland Raiders cheerleader Lacy Thibodeaux, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, and LVBH partner Sharon Vinick, along with others. Entitled “Cheering on Change,” the event follows closely on the PBS debut of the new documentary “A Woman’s Work: The NFL’s Cheerleader Problem.”
The organizers promise the panel will “discuss how to organize within your communities, instill lasting change within your organization and work with leadership to achieve meaningful goals.” Registration through Eventbrite is open now.
Legal expert and The Young Turks correspondent, Adrienne Lawrence, will moderate the panel. After going public in 2017 about the rampant sexual harassment, misogynoir and gender discrimination at her former employer ESPN, Lawrence became the first on-air personality to sue ESPN for sexual harassment.
