EAST LANSING, MI – The City of East Lansing, MI, partnered with “Parents of Sister Survivors Engage,” also known as “POSSE,” to install teal prayer flags for each of the 505 known survivors of Larry Nassar.

Thousands from the Michigan State University student body signed the flags with words of support and encouragement.

Larry Nassar was a physician at MSU for decades and was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison in 2018 on child pornography charges as well as two consecutive terms, amounting to an effective life sentence, in Ingham and Eaton Counties on Criminal Sexual Conduct charges.
