The Unspeakable Crime: Childhood Sexual Abuse Panel
When: March 13, 2014 7-9 PM
Where: Harris United Methodist Church, 20 N. Vineyard, Honolulu
Sponsored by Rainbow Family 808.com
Rainbow Family 808.com, is proud to announce their First Support Group Meeting. It will address Childhood Sexual Abuse in our midst. This timely Panel focuses on the two-year window for Childhood Sexual Abuse which ends in April 2014. Families need to understand the harm this ‘unspeakable’ crime does to their children.
Joelle Casteix is the leading national “in the trenches” expert on the prevention and exposure of child sex abuse and cover-up, especially within institutions such as the Catholic Church. A former journalist, educator, and public relations professional, Joelle has taken her own experience as a victim of child sex crimes and devoted her career to exposing abuse, advocating on behalf of survivors, and spreading abuse prevention strategies for parents and communities.
Attorney Jeff Anderson is widely recognized as a pioneer in sexual abuse litigation and a champion of survivors of childhood sexual abuse. In nearly four decades as a litigator Jeff has represented thousands of clients and has tried over two hundred and fifty jury trials to verdict. Known for his optimism, energy and compassion for clients, Jeff is credited with being instrumental in exposing the large scale cover-up of pedophile priests in the early 1980’s. As one of the first trial lawyers in America to publicly and aggressively initiate lawsuits against sexual predators—and the institutions that conceal and protect them—Jeff’s efforts have obtained justice for thousands of survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Attorney Mark Gallagher is a local attorney who has helped survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse and is considered an expert with over 20 years of experience in the Personal Injury Field. He has successfully litigated personal injury cases on Oahu, the Big Island, Kauai, Maui and the federal court.
Other speakers TBD
