Ready to Stand Up?
Thousands of men and women live today with the dark secret of clergy sex abuse at the hands of religious leaders. It could have happened at a church, at a camp, at a school.
The location does not matter.
You do matter.

The recently released Pennsylvania grand jury report contained a staggering half million pages, making it clear that priest sex abuse in the Catholic Church can no longer be swept under the rug or relegated to supposedly one-off incidents.
Clergy sex abuse is an epidemic that needs to stop.
Attorneys general across the country are initiating investigations and issuing subpoenas. For the last 16 years, ever since the The Boston Globe first revealed harrowing stories of clergy sex abuse, accounts from survivors have detailed years of priest sex abuse, cover-ups and failures to protect children and adults from predatory clergy. While there have been several Catholic Church lawsuits and successful Catholic Church settlements, there is still more work to be done.
Recent calls for Pope Francis to take more stringent action include the Pope’s recent acceptance of the resignation of a West Virginia bishop and the ordering of a church-run investigation into allegations that the bishop sexually harassed adults.
This is only the beginning of the wave of healing that can only take place when survivors of this horrific abuse are empowered to speak out.
What Can You Do?
If you were hurt by any type of clergy sex abuse, please do not keep this to yourself or attempt to handle this on your own. Healing so often comes from taking action. We have worked with hundreds of sexual abuse survivors across the country as they deal with their abuse, learning how and when to take legal action against the predators who abused them.
Taking civil legal action is a way to regain your power and to help others by using our legal system to punish existing predators and make it much harder for future would-be assailants to carry out their dark plans.
EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN DECADES SINCE YOU WERE HURT, YOU MAY STILL VERY WELL HAVE LEGAL OPTIONS THAT WILL HELP YOU AND HELP OTHERS.
“I have met survivors who would prefer never to speak of it.
But many more find salvation in telling their stories …
They want to know if their abuser had other victims.
They want other victims to know they were not alone, and that it was not their fault.
They want to put their trauma to some use.
Only then can they rest.”
