In the news:

In past decades, immense social pressures existed to prevent victims of child sexual abuse from coming forward. Survivors feared upsetting loved ones and putting them through emotional turmoil, were worried outsiders would think they were somehow to blame for the abuse, and feared being disbelieved or harshly questioned. They knew that accusations against a popular leader or authority figure can often be covered up.

Today, those pressures still exist, but there is a difference. Contrasting incentives now exist to encourage coming forward. In today’s social climate, there is more acceptance and understanding of abuse victims. In some areas, statues of limitations are being raised or done away with, so survivors can seek justice and much-deserved settlements, even for crimes that occurred decades ago. And in some cases survivors’ stories are being actively sought out.

In Florida, the attorney general has launched a tip site for victims of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy. The site was announced in fall 2018 as part of an ongoing investigation into 7 archdioceses in the state, and will collect tips from both victims and third parties. Authorities state that all information from tipsters will be kept private. It asks for relevant details like the name of the abuser and the location of the incidents. Just days after the launch of the site, authorities stated they had received 15 tips.

The initiative is part of a nationwide trend toward more proactively investigating child sex crimes in the church. It was sparked in part by a massive 2018 Pennsylvania grand jury report detailing the massive scale of predatory behavior by priests in that state.
A tip line like this one can encourage people to come forward who might otherwise have been uncertain whether anyone in law enforcement would have been interested in pursuing their accusations. And with an investigation already ongoing, any new information this site brings forth can provide support and substantiation for accusations that are already being investigated.

Incidents like these in the Catholic church show how abuses of power can thrive when there is no transparency or recourse for victims. Initiatives such as tip lines can help overcome a culture in which people at the top of a hierarchy can abuse the vulnerable.
