POL - Abuse group organized in Poland, SNAP applauds the effort
An organization to advocate for and help the survivors of clergy sex abuse in Poland is now being created.
We stand in solidarity with these victims as they unite to address the on-going, horrific child sex abuse and cover up crisis in the church. It's encouraging any time that survivors of abuse can come together to promote healing and prevention. We wish these brave survivors all the success possible as they being their work to help kids and sex abuse victims in Poland.
We urge all survivors of abuse to contact this group and learn just how useful a support and advocacy group can be. We welcome cooperation with this group and applaud their efforts.
50 State AG Call for Grand Jury
Any investigation must be:
- independent of and separate from the church
- must have subpoena powers and ability to compel testimony under oath
Anything short of these criteria is a sham and whitewash.
In addition, write letters to the editor, make phone calls to politicians as they can apply pressure to keep them responsive to our demand. We need to make efforts to ensure that they follow up on what the state is doing to investigate these crimes.
The Attorneys General of forty states have inquired about the grand jury process in Pennsylvania. Let's get statewide investigations going in fifty states.
