Minnesota Child Victims Act Year One : Healing

Comments Off

The Minnesota Child Victims Act is now a year old and has two more years to go. The Minneapolis Tribune took time for the anniversary to look at how it is going. The story was interesting for its overview, but there are areas that are worth looking at a little closer.

Survivors have finally gotten a chance to see justice.  Bill author Representative Steve Simon calls the past year “an occasion to reflect on what went wrong” and to learn from it.“It’s a painfully teachable moment,” the representative said. “And it’s about healing for a lot of people who for a long time were ignored or dismissed or worse. They are finally getting their justice.”

Abuse of children and the continued silence by the offenders needs to be prevented. If you suffered, saw, or suspected such events, it is important to know that there is help out there.
