PA--Special Penn State board meeting set
For immediate release: Monday, April 6
The board of Penn State will hold a litigation-related special meeting this Thursday. We hope it will be a step towards closure for those who were assaulted as kids by Jerry Sandusky and for other rape and child sex abuse victims who are hurt each time Penn State backers and officials try to publicly defend school officials accused of ignoring Sandusky’s crimes.
We again urge university administrators and trustees to abandon efforts to restore the reputations of Joe Paterno and others who clearly did little or nothing to stop Sandusky from molesting kids.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We were founded in 1988 and have more than 20,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers.
