New International Organization against the Epidemic of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church

New International Organization against the Epidemic of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church

Ending Clergy Abuse (ECA) is a new international organization, formed by survivors and activists from more than 15 countries. All of them are engaged with the end of abuse in all forms, especially the child sexual abuse in clergy contexts. ECA is challenging The Church to punish bishops implicated on child sexual abuse and cover up around the globe.

ECA members will hold a press conference to: – Urge Pope Francis, as the head of Catholic Church, to investigate bishops across the world who have mishandled sex abuse cases; – Challenge the Pope to use his June 21 visit to Geneva to commit to creating a central mechanism for holding bishops accountable; – Announce the formation of Ending Clergy Abuse (ECA) a new global justice effort to end the epidemic of child sex abuse in the Catholic Church.
