Our second keynote speaker is Jetta Bernier, from the Enough Abuse Campaign speaking on sexual abuse prevention and the power of advocacy.
The breakout sessions are a "who's who" of top professionals in their field:
Anne Barrett Doyle, Terry McKiernan, and Suzy Nauman from the internationally known bishopaccountability.org will discuss their work in documenting and archiving.
Bob Hoatson from Road to Recovery will share his stories of outreach to survivors.
Kay Ebeling and Patrick O'Malley are going to talk about the contribution of social media.
Sunday our keynote speaker will be Professor Marci A. Hamilton. A leading church vs. state expert who specializes on the issue of whether religious practices that violate the law should be accommodated and who has represented many survivors of childhood sexual abuse, with focus on those circumstances where the abuse was made possible. She is the author of "God vs. the Gavel religion and the Rule of Law".
Dr. Ann Webb, survivor, therapist and advocate, will share her closing remarks. And then it is off to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. We will join in solidarity with the "Sidewalk Protesters" who have stood for us in protest every Sunday for the last ten years. We will hold signs and photos, please feel free to bring your own. Come share with us the celebration of our journeys and fellowship as we look toward the future.
