We believe that press and communal attention is required to effect changes within the ultra-Orthodox and Hasidic communities with regard to sexual molestation. To that end we will continue to stage lawful and peaceful protests at appropriate venues as well as support victims when their cases come to court. We will create an outcry, on behalf of victims, that cannot be ignored and will not cease until there is tangible reform in the following areas:

  • Rabbinical authorities unequivocally assert that ALL abuse allegations are brought directly to appropriate authorities;
  • Children and families are educated on abuse prevention and how to properly handle abuse incidents;
  • All school, camp, and mikva employees and volunteers are fingerprinted and subjected to background checks.
