On Tuesday January 30, 2018, the two NYS Chapters of Call to Action joined a coalition of advocates to hold a press conference outside the NYS Senate chambers in Albany in support of the Child Victim’s Act.
. This event was given broad TV coverage: http://wnyt.com/politics/survivors-of-child-sexual-abuse-call-for-statue-of-limitation-extension-albany/4765159/?cat=10114
Later in the day members of the coalition provided testimony in support of passage of the Child Victim’s Act to the joint legislative hearings on the Public Safety Budget. This involved a semi-heroic effort since all state agency testimony for the budget preceded items such as the CVA. Our speakers were called to present a little after 10:00pm.
