Advocating to Change Federal Laws on Clergy Sexual Abuse

The Following note comes from The Awareness Center's Daily Newsletter

Dear Friends,

The Awareness Center supports the efforts of an organization called "
A Matter of Truth".

We are asking everyone to go to the "
A Matter of Truth" web page and send an online letter requesting congressional hearings on clergy sex abuse. As we all know -- clergy sexual abuse is a problem that effects every faith. It is national problem and needs a national solution.

The online form makes it super-easy. You can just change the words a bit and/or add words of your own, and then add your name. It is recommend that you state what religion you are (or that you are a family member or friend) were abused in so that members of Congress will see that the problem affects people across a wide spectrum and is not just a Catholic problem.

Here's the link:

Click where it says "Contact Rep. Henry Waxman and Government Reform Committee" and scan down a bit.
