Support the NY Child Victims Act (A1771, Margaret Markey)

    1. Petition by

      Robert Kristan

There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of unknown sex abusers of children living and working among us -- in schools, churches, synagogues, youth groups, and especially in families. If they are to be found and pursued, our legislators must change the New York State statute of limitations (SOL).

If you would like to become more active in passing this bill, please email: NYProtectChildren@Gmail.com

      A REAL GOOD FRIEND OF MINE WAS MOLESTED IN NEW YOUK AND THE LIMITATIONS RAN OUT ON HIM. I DONT THINK SOMEONE THAT MOLESTS KIDS HAVE A RIGHT TO EXCAPE RESPONCIBILITY BECAUSE OF A TIME FRAME.
