Joelle Casteix, Prominent Local Catholic Church Sex-Abuse Survivor, Stars in National Campaign for Child Victim Act
And now Casteix is taking her story to a national level by serving as one of the faces for a national campaign to help pass something called the Child Victims Act.
Being pursued for the moment on a state-by-state level, the proposed legislation would take away the statute of limitations currently imposed on sex-abuse survivors regarding civil lawsuits that has long hindered complete judgement on pedophiles, especially of the Catholic Church variety. In California, it's currently in the state Senate.
