Reporting and Surviving Abuse - Two Articles Featuring SNAP by Bailey Brown
The below linked articles Reporting Abuse and Surviving Abuse were written by Bailey Brown, a graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas with a degree in journalism. For her senior journalism project, she reported on clergy sexual abuse and interviewed several SNAP survivor advocates for her stories.
Reporting Abuse talks about the complexities around how survivors report, how churches and institutions deal with those reports, and features SNAP's nun abuse and Seattle, WA leader Mary Dispenza.
Surviving Abuse tells the story of Steve Bartley, a retired law enforcement officer who was abused in the Archdiocese of San Antonio and today is an advocate who helps other survivors navigate how to speak out, report their abuse, and tell their story.
We are grateful to Bailey for covering these important topics and for allowing us to host her articles.
