Event Video: The 2022 Humanitarian Award Ceremony – Celebrating Jon Vaughn

On October 14th, 2022, abuse survivor and activist Jon Vaughn was awarded the Foundation for Global Sports Development 2022 Humanitarian Award.

As a survivor of abuse during his time playing football for the University of Michigan, Jon is now devoted to changing the culture of sport and athlete care.

“We can’t change what happened to us, but we sure can make this campus safer today and in the future,” Vaughn has said. “We can speak out and speak up about this dark issue plaguing us. This is a human problem.”

Jon was joined by host Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, and speakers David Ulich, Trinea Gonczar and Daphne Young.
