VA--Church abuse panel questions EMU's choice of consulting firm

For immediate release: Wednesday, August 3rd, 2016

Statement by Barbra Graber, SNAP Leader,

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

(, 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.
