RI--RI elite school settles

For immediate release: Wednesday, Aug. 3

Statement by Ann Hagan Webb, Rhode Island director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

(annhaganwebb@gmail.com, 617-513-8442)                                                                                                 

We applaud the brave, compassionate and persistent victims at a Rhode Island for being smart enough to unite, brave enough to share their pain, wise enough to consult attorneys and strong enough to endure a long process of justice, prevention and healing. Their success should deter would-be wrongdoers and inspire suffering victims.
