Guest: Rev. Jan Chase
Rev. Jan Chase is the minister at Unity Truth Center in Pomona, California. Though we originally planned to talk about her work with Interfaith bullying in schools, her recent trip to Israel and Palestine is filled with everything from visiting the Church of the Beatitudes, near where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount, to violent explosions while visiting the Dome of the Rock. When she described her trip to me, we knew that she needed to share this story of what is happening in Israel and Palestine today. There are efforts from so many, of different faiths, to bring peace amidst violence that can erupt at any moment.
In California, Jan is committed to diversity and the community, She is a member of 6 local Interfaith groups and is also a part-time student at Claremont School of Theology/ and the Interfaith Claremont Lincoln University. Jan has formed interfaith partnerships with many religious leaders in the area, inviting them into community work within the school district, the mental health community and with the Department of Children and Family Services. Passionate about learning about other religions and bringing people together to build understanding and peace, she has been honored with several awards in the community.

Justice. Is it more than a pipe dream for survivors of childhood abuse, or can it become reality? From the issue of statutes of limitation to the grueling process of the deposition and trial, seeking justice as a survivor is a challenge. Over the past few years it has become clear that childhood sexual abuse is more prevalent than previously known and more and more common myths are beginning to get dispelled. Less than 3% of abusers ever receive adequate penalties for their crimes. It is important for a victim of childhood sexual abuse to understand that you are not alone, and that the abuse was not your fault. The decision to pursue legal action against an abuser is a difficult one. Join Misa with sexual abuse attorney, Michael Kinslow for an eye-opening discussion about the role of justice in the healing process for survivors this Saturday, May 11 on Beyond Abuse Radio.
Michael Kinslow is a trial lawyer. Inspired by Robert Kennedy’s call to dedicate ourselves “to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world,” Kinslow represents people who have been physically, emotionally and psychologically harmed by others. Since becoming admitted to the practice of law in California in 2005, his principal area of work is representing survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
This work has taken Kinslow into courtrooms throughout the state and across the nation, helping to stem the damage caused to his clients and society by the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse. These efforts include both the litigation of individual cases and active participation in complex coordinated proceedings against large corporations who provided pedophiles access to children.
