Abuse victims rally in Albany for Child Victims Act [Channel 13 News] http://wnyt.com/news/child-victims-act-rally-albany/4806127/

Upstate CTA and NYC Metro CTA joined the coalition of child sex abuse survivors and advocates at the Capital February 27 to discuss the Child Victim’s Act with individual members of the legislature.  After the press conference (see above photo and attached file below with content) Safe Horizons organized eight groups of approx. eight people each to meet with the legislators in their offices.  Each group held a minimum of five such meetings. Our group, which was assigned to visit Upstate legislators, included Call To Acton members, survivors of familial sex abuse, a survivor of sex abuse at Emma Willard School, Parents of a child abused by priests, the wife of a man abused by a priest and a former Olympic Speed Skater abused by her coach.
