The Harvey Weinstein scandal has led to a wave of reports about powerful men who have harassed or, at times, sexually assaulted women and men in the workplace. Many victims have boldly spoken out, naming the individuals who took advantage of them and detailing a culture of appalling and sometimes criminal behavior. The revelations have ensnared high-profile figures in the entertainment industry as well as notables in media and politics.
NJ Advance Media is investigating and corroborating incidents of sexual harassment across New Jersey and in all areas of public life, from the Statehouse to city halls, sports teams to academia, private companies to public agencies. We are interested in speaking to people who want to tell their story about this pervasive behavior.
Our commitment to you: As the lead reporter on this effort with more than two decades of journalism — most of it telling stories of domestic violence, crime, people with disabilities and abuse and neglect of children — please be assured we take your privacy seriously and will treat your information with the sensitivity it deserves. We will not share your information with any third-parties or publish any details of your story without your permission.
