Clergy Abuse Victims' Advocate

Jim Vansickle is a clergy sex abuse victims' advocate and member of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury that released findings regarding more than 300 predator priests in Pennsylvania.  He is working out of pocket and traveling to meet victims in order to advocate for them. Travel and hotel expenses, as well as time away from his own business are creating a financial strain.  Jim would appreciate your support as he and other advocates continue this important work on behalf of victims past and present, as well as safeguarding against future victimization and cover ups.[phone redacted]85070aee.html 

Jim's mother, Carol, did not know that  Father David Poulson was a predator when she sent her son to Bradford Central Christian High School in the Erie Diocese.
