Survivors of clergy abuse mark 10-year anniversary
Event marks 2002 scandal revelation
Their conference yesterday was billed as a celebration of 10 years of advocacy and accomplishment, but victims of clergy sexual abuse who came to reflect on a decade of change said it was only the beginning. “Who would have thought, 10 years ago, that we would still be here?’’ said Paul Kellen, a conference organizer with the advocacy group Speak Truth to Power. About 75 people attended yesterday’s gathering, including abuse survivors, advocates and supporters from New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
