Are Kids Safer Now?
Play • 43 min

The 2011 Philadelphia Grand Jury Report exposed the Catholic hierarchy's continuing coverup despite the horrific details of clergy child sex abuse in the 2005 Grand Jury Report. For a second time, the Archdiocese made promises of accountability and transparency. Have they been kept? Are kids any safer now? We have the mind-blowing answer that every parent and Catholic needs to hear. Zach Hiner, the executive director of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, and Mike McDonnell, their director of communications and a survivor of clergy child sex abuse in Philadelphia, join co-hosts and Catholics4Change co-founders, Kathy Kane and Susan Matthews.
