Child Rape Is Only Worth $5,500

This week, the Diocese of Fairbanks submitted an amended bankruptcy reorganization plan to federal bankruptcy court.

They leaked it to the media early in order to get favorable coverage before victims had the opportunity to respond.

The final result:  Alaska Native victims of sexual abuse, who have suffered for generations at the hands of priests from the Fairbanks Diocese and the Jesuits, are only guaranteed $5,500.

For victims who live in Alaska Native Villages – many without running water – that amount barely pays for a year’s worth of counseling.

Please help us voice your outrage.  Write letters to the editor, talk to your friends, spread the word and make sure that victims of sexual abuse DO NOT BECOME VICTIMS OF A SECOND RAPE.
