Action Alert: Sign the Online Petition in support of the Child Victims Act of New York

Sign the Online Petition in support of the Child Victims Act of New York:

The Child Victims Act of New York will:

* Expose UNKNOWN AND SHIELDED predators by suspending the statute of limitations for just one year, allowing cases to be revived.
* Provide justice for victims who were unfairly or criminally denied their day in court.
* The limit would be 35 years after age 18.
* Provide additional time for future victims to overcome their trauma, extending the SOL from age 23 to 28.
* Applies to all sectors, public and private
* Save our state extensive financial and social costs by reducing the number of victims and abusers
