SNAP responds to PA Dioceses Receiving Grand Jury Reports
For immediate release May 24, 2018
Statement by: Judy Jones, SNAP Midwest Regional Leader: 636-433-2511, [email protected]
We whole heartedly agree with PA Rep. Mark Rozzi that Pennsylvania Dioceses should not have received the results of the PA Attorney Generals grand jury reports exclusively, and the public being kept in the dark.
Parents and parishioners need to know who the known credible predators are so they can protect their children from harm.
Additionally, it is imperative that these reports are made public so that those who enabled and covered up sex crimes can be exposed and held accountable. It's a crime to sexually abuse children and it is a crime to cover up the abuse.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network, is the world's oldest and largest support group for victims of sexual abuse in institutional settings. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 25,000 supporters. Our website isSNAPnetwork .org)
