Senator Lisa Baker (R) has been identified as a key vote on window legislation before the Pennsylvania Senate that would allow victims of child sexual assault the ability to take civil action against the people and organizations that have been covering up abuse for years. At this moment, we think she is a “No” vote going forward. That means that she supports the denial of justice to all victims of child sex abuse, rape, and molestation.
Is she your Senator? If yes, pick up your phone and call her office at (570) 675-3931. Her constituents are from Luzerne, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne, and Wyoming Counties. Attached is a spreadsheet where you can see the specific municipalities.
Calls/visits from her constituents would be incredibly helpful for the movement to pass the two-year window.
She seems to support a fund by the Catholic Church to pay restitution to victims. The fund will only perpetuate the silence the church has been seeking. It also denies justice to those outside of the Catholic Child Sex Crime Crisis.
