SPOTLIGHT--Welcome to your movie
Remarks by Phil Saviano at the Boston showing of SPOTLIGHT for abuse victims
Welcome to your film. It’s your film because it's your courage and your compassion that made it possible.
The Globe’s team did remarkable work. But they’re the first to admit that without brave Boston survivors, they couldn’t have done their outstanding investigation.
Each one of you should feel deeply proud of your role in this film and in this crisis, regardless of whether you sued, settled, spoke publicly or didn’t. Each of you has exposed wrongdoers, protected kids, and deterred wrongdoing. We in SNAP are incredibly grateful for all you have done and are doing to safeguard the vulnerable and heal the wounded.
Please keep taking care of yourself. And please do what you can to get or stay more involved in our on-going struggle to make sure others don’t suffer like we’ve suffered.
