SNAP Letter to Bishop James V. Johnston

- A public meeting—moderated and hosted by a neutral third party—with you, parishioners, parents, advocates, supporters, and SNAP. This meeting will address safety concerns at the parish and across the entire diocese. Subjects addressed will include reporting abuse, empowering parents to report, training on reporting laws, understanding the illegality of “internal investigations,” ethics issues in the December 2016 parish letter (including references to “gossip and speculation”) and accountability.
- The installation of a third-party sexual abuse prevention oversight committee for the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. Church officials have shown that they still need guidance when it comes to reporting abuse. Therefore, a third-party oversight committee consisting of survivors, attorneys for victims, and parents of victims can step in in cases like this, interviewing church officials, and determining where better training, systems, and hiring needs to happen.
