SNAP teamed with the Center for Constitutional Rights to submit shadow reports to the United Nations Committee
Against Torture (UN CAT) and the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC) about abuse and cover-up by priests and Catholic officials. As a result of these reports, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Committee Against Torture investigated the Vatican. With the help of SNAP and CCR, the UN committees investigated the Vatican and found, overwhelmingly, that not nearly enough is being done to protect children and in fact, children are deliberately being put at risk by Catholic officials.
