In 2019 I joined YAL and that summer participated in OWD. I was sexually harassed by my boss and decided it was for the best for me to resign from OWD. I was so hesitant to come forward about everything cause I knew YAL was a boys club and I was scared I wouldn’t be believed.
I wrote emails to YAL explaining everything that happened and how I would be leaving the campaign. I sent the email to my coworkers as well because I believed that they should know the truth about our boss.
I left that day and was later told by my coworkers that one of the higher ups came and bought them all a steak dinner and told them they weren’t allowed to have contact with me until the campaign was over. My offended stepped down and I was reassured he wouldn’t be hired again.
I tried putting the past behind me and to go on with my life. I struggled with PTSD because of this experience and had to seek therapy to be able to just be able to live my life again.
This past year I was contacted by one of my coworkers from OWD telling me that my abuser was working for YAL again. I was disgusted and pissed that YAL would willing keep employing a person who sexually assaults the young women who work under him.
But after hearing that I’m not the only person struggling with YAL I guess it’s no surprise at all. YAL is a great organization that preaches the value of liberty, unfortunately it’s just ran by men that don’t care about their members.
