WY--Victims applaud Symphony’s move today

For immediate release: Wednesday, April 13, 2016 

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, 314 645 5915 home, [email protected])

We are grateful and relieved that the Wyoming Symphony won’t let an accused sexual harasser play with them. They moved quickly and appropriately in this case. We applaud their sensitivity. And we applaud the courage of the young Boston women - Erin Shyr and Maria Currie - who are exposing wrongdoing by Eric Ruske and Boston University.


It’s rewarding to see that a wrongdoer can’t escape consequences just by going somewhere else.

Those who respond poorly to reports of sexual harassment should be punished. Those who respond promptly and properly should be rewarded. So we encourage Wyoming residents to attend the symphony this weekend and in the future. Non-profits that act responsibly in cases of sexual harassment or abuse deserve our support.
