Message to the Washington Jewish Week

I think it's time the Washington Jewish Week STOP protecting the names of offenders and START protecting the identities of Survivors of Sexual Violence.

Please read the information on the following page and learn:
Ethics of News Media in Covering Cases of Sexual Violence

I'm asking that everyone who reads this blog to write or call the Washington Jewish Week and let them know they are not following the ethics of United States Department of Justice - Chapter 18: The News Media's Coverage of Crime and Victimization

I'm outraged. They didn't even bother to ask the survivor for permission to use her name in the article.

I'm also outraged that the synogogue would vote Jay Jarvis as man of the year, weeks or months after he pled guility. What were they thinking?
