Changing Institutions that Protect Abusers
Changing the Institutions that Give Perpetrators of Child Abuse Protection
Even after the many recent news stories uncovering child sexual abuse in Catholic churches, many institutions have policies of covering up and excusing incidents of sex abuse. Many organizations try to deal with sexual abusers “in-house” instead of turning them into authorities. These self-serving, dangerous practices only enable abusers to continue terrorizing children.
Attorneys at Kosnoff Fasy have spent years going after institutions that protect sexual abusers of children. They have represented hundreds of abused people against the following organizations:
- The Boy Scouts
- The Latter Day Saints, a.k.a. the Mormons
- Jehovah’s Witnesses
- Catholic Dioceses in Washington State
None of these organizations encourages their members to sexually abuse children. But all have been found to consistently fail to act on allegations of abuse, shuffle abusers to different locations, and prevent incidents from becoming public. By covering up their crimes, these institutions are guilty of allowing sexual abusers to continue destroying people’s lives.
How We Can Fight Back
The best way to fight back against this outrageous behavior, both by sexual abusers and the organizations that support them, is to hold them accountable in a court of law. The civil justice system can have the effect of getting organizations to change their policies and practices when it comes to giving sanctuary to those who sexually abuse children.
