My Social Activism
For nearly a decade I was a member of SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests), then took on a leadership role in 2002. I co-led survivor groups in Mass. and NH, participated in, and sometimes organized demonstrations and conferences, gave speeches, and was often asked to be a spokesperson to the press. I became the New England Co-Coordinator of SNAP, and was a founding member of STTOP, Speak Truth To Power. I collaborated with Mass Citizens for Children and Bishop Accountability. For several years I was an active member in CORSAL, the Coalition to Reform Sex Abuse Laws. This involved speaking before legislative hearings, public rallies at the State House, meeting with various public figures including the Attorney General and the Lieutenant Governor, lobbying, and letter writing.
I continue to speak out to the press, and work with others to promote social and legal changes in the community to better protect our children. Although my public work in this arena has been personally rewarding, so much work remains to be done.
