Download Format(s) :

  • Part 1: The Church’s sex abuse crisis is marking a decade since its eruption in Boston and is spreading across the globe. Shocking disclosures have recently surfaced in Philadelphia. While the hierarchy claims the problems are essentially “history,” the truth is that the crimes and cover-ups continue today. This presentation summarizes the evidence and outlines ways everyone can help redeem our church and protect children in the future.
  • Part 2: Some groups and individuals are often-quoted “media darlings.” Others struggle for even the slightest visibility. How can you and your folks be more successful in the media? In this ‘hands-on’ workshop, learn a wide range of relatively simple but proven tactics (some surprisingly quick and easy) to help get your viewpoint across effectively and build your organization in the process.
  • In 1988, Barbara Blaine founded SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, the nation’s oldest and largest self-help organization for victims of clergy sexual abuse. David Clohessy joined in 1989 and the two have not looked back. SNAP’s first support meetings were held in at a Catholic Worker house where Blaine worked in Chicago. Through word of mouth, small ads and hundreds of press events SNAP grew into an international outreach, educational and advocacy organization. Today, SNAP has more than 10,000 members and 65 chapters in the United States, Canada, Mexico and across Europe. Blaine and Clohessy are both survivors of abuse by a priest they suffered as young teens. Blaine went on to become a social worker and an attorney who advocated for children’s rights. Clohessy was a community organizer, political strategist and communications director for a school district outside St. Louis. Both now work full-time for SNAP.

Unlike his son, José was born in México and came to the United States when he was eight years old. He came to this country because his parents, who were already here, wanted a better education and future for him, something that is very difficult to accomplish in his home country. José grew up in Chicago and considered it his home—until an unfortunate event in his life occurred in 2008 and José suddenly faced the prospect of being separated from everything he knew.
  • Born and raised in Mexico, Jorge Mújica has lived in the United States since 1987. An awarded journalist, he currently publishes an opinion column printed in over 30 newspapers in Mexico and the United States. Since 2006, Mújica has been the most visible face in the movement to achieve comprehensive immigration reform and legalization for some 12 million undocumented immigrants in the country.
