Silence makes evil possible, SNAP writes on its website.  Judy Jones is one woman who is breaking the silence.


Judy is the Associate Director of the Midwest Region for SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.


Judy was born and raised in the Catholic Church. She was married in the Church. The Catholic Church played a central role in her life.


Today, she is no longer Catholic.  That’s because about 20 years ago, she learned that her brother and several other relatives had been abused by Father Brown, the priest of her local church in Woodsfield, Ohio.  In the following years when she sought the truth, her diocese lied about their knowledge that Father Brown had abused young boys. (The full story is published on Judy's web site.)


After processing the shock, heartbreak and rage she felt during her investigations, Judy knew that she needed to reach out and help victims heal and find justice.


In our interview with Judy, we will learn how SNAP helps victims of abuse, and what you can do to either help SNAP or heal abuse that you may have suffered.


Please consider making a tax deductible donation to SNAP, a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is 1) to reach out to survivors of clergy sexual abuse 2) to provide in-person and online support groups 3) while serving as a clearinghouse for key information 4) and to prevent further abuse through public education and advocacy.
