We Are Survivors 

This blog is dedicated to the tens of millions of adult survivors of child abuse and neglect who get up every day and try to work and function in a world that seems to not care about us.

Justice for Adult Survivors of Child Abuse

On the evening of April 28, the film Pursuit of Truth was shown at our law offices of Alston & Bird in Washington, D.C. It depicts the horrendous obstacles adult survivors of child abuse face in the criminal justice system when trying to sue their perpetrators. There exists a brick wall of denial in America about the long-term impact of child abuse. Diane VanHOllen

Congressman Chris Van Hollen joined Diane Champé in introducing the film to a crowded room of nonprofits, legal experts, therapists, and survivors. Most people in the room had no idea how constrained and unsympathetic the system is when adult survivors take the giant step in confronting their abuser(s).

The film can be purchased at www.pursuitoftruthfilm.com. We highly recommend our readers purchasing it and sharing the information it provides with as many people as possible.
