Clergy abuse victims meet on US anniversary

Clergy abuse victims meet on US anniversary

Dozens of clergy sex abuse victims are gathering in the U.S. to mark a decade since the abuse crisis broke and devastated Roman Catholics.
The conference in Boston this weekend coincides with the 10th anniversary of a Boston Globe newspaper story that began a stream of revelations about abusive priests and church leaders who failed to stop them.
An organizer said clergy sex abuse victims make up about two-thirds of the 120 people signed up for the conference.
The conference aims to encourage victims to help expose abuse and publicly tell their stories.
Another goal is to celebrate progress in forcing the church to confront abuse _ even though one organizer says there are "many, many miles to go."
