Victims of Catholic Sex Abuse Cite Impact of ‘Spotlight’

Posted to Politics November 25, 2015 by Graham Vyse,

The new movie Spotlight is generating Oscar buzz for its depiction of the Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prizewinning investigation into sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. In the nation’s capital, the film is also encouraging advocates for abuse victims who want religious institutions — and the D.C. government — to do more for their cause.

“It’s very motivating to myself and other leaders,” said Becky Ianni, the D.C. and Virginia director for the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP). Ianni told InsideSources she’s seen an increase in phone calls from victims since Spotlight has been promoted and released in the past few months.




The privacy and free speech of victims and SNAP are being attacked by lawyers for predators and their enablers. Details available here.
