Petition to Gary A.Greenberg

Help Us Protect Your Confidential Information

A frivolous lawsuit is putting our supporters confidential information at risk. The Stop Abuse Campaign is committed to protecting your data and identity in the face of a frivolous lawsuit brought by Gary Greenberg, an investor with ties to casinos in the Albany area. Greenberg is suing the Campaign for $25,000 in order to force the organization to share its email list of abuse victims. The Stop Abuse Campaign has well established strict policies protecting the confidential data entrusted to it by supporters, many of you survivors of childhood trauma. Greenberg, the founder of the Fighting For Children PAC, claims he is entitled to the email addresses of the 70,000 people who have signed a Stop Abuse Campaign petition supporting the Child Victims Act, an act to protect children from sexual abuse. Greenberg’s political action committee has launched disturbing and aggressive tactics to damage the Stop Abuse Campaign’s efforts to protect our supporters’ data. Many of our supporters are survivors of horrible abuse, including childhood sexual abuse. As survivors ourselves, we know how important privacy is and we will not breach our supporters’ trust. In 11 years we have never been closer to passing the Child Victims Act and we will not let this delay us from our efforts to pass the Act. The next generation of children are counting on us to prevent this baseless lawsuit. The Child Victims Act will eliminate the statute of limitations in New York. We have 70,000 signatures to date, the petition in support of The Child Victims act is a powerful demonstration directing our elected officials to protect children from the trauma of abuse. That is why people signed it. They did not sign it with the intention of having their email addresses shared with Mr. Greenberg, or anyone else. We have been trying to resolve this issue without the court; however, Mr. Greenberg seems insistent on putting our small not-for-profit that protects children from abuse out of business in order to get what he wants. When you support this petition Change.org will send Mr Greenberg an email with your request that he not bankrupt the Stop Abuse Campaign with this vexatious lawsuit. Please sign the petition now.
