If you live in PA, call your representatives!

If you live in Pennsylvania it is time to call your representatives in Harrisburg and urge them to pass legislation that will enable victims of sexual abuse at the hands of predators that were protected by the institutions in which they were employed to sue for damages.

The Governor of Pennsylvania wants several recommendations from the Grand Jury Report to be enacted but Republican lawmakers acting at the behest of the Catholic Dioceses in the state are trying to prevent survivors from seeking justice.

The fight begins in Harrisburg this morning.  If you are a resident of Pennsylvania it is time to pick up the phone.
