To SNAP, Margaret Mata is a hero
A grant writer, Margaret Mata had a good job finding funding for the Kansas City diocese. Then she learned that diocesan officials were not telling the truth about the Fr. Shawn Ratigan child porn and cover-up case.
She did what every employer hopes for: she volunteered her expertise to help. Her goal was to reach out to anyone who had been hurt and make resources available to concerned parents and the community.
Because of her offers of help, diocesan officials harassed, investigated and punished her. She was forced to resign.
To us she is a hero. She put the protection of children ahead of her own needs and career. We hope others will follow her lead.
