PA--Survivors Respond: Grand Jury reports to be released
For immediate release: Monday, June 11, 2018
Statement by: Judy Jones, SNAP Midwest Regional Leader: 636-433-2511, SNAPjudy@gmail.com
The protection of children is always the right thing to do, thus it is a positive step that the PA Grand Jury reports will be made public so that those who enabled and covered up sex crimes can be exposed and held accountable.
Hopefully these expansive Pennsylvania Grand Jury reports will motivate Attorney Generals in other states to do the same kind of investigations. The corrupt system of enabling and covering up child sex crimes within the Catholic church is the same in every diocese in the United States of America and its territories (e.g. Guam).
The pressure to expel or force the resignation of all child sex abusers and their accomplices within religious institutions has started and must not be stopped.
Action to protect children and help survivors can be taken. Your support is necessary. Pennsylvania State Rep. Mark Rozzi will hold a rally, Tuesday, June 12, 3 pm at the State Capital Building calling for dramatic reform of Statute of Limitations laws.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network, is the world's oldest and largest support group for victims of sexual abuse in institutional settings. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 25,000 supporters. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org )
