We demand your prompt and thorough investigation of all religious personnel and their institutions in our country who bear responsibility for the sexual abuse of children and vulnerable adults.

We demand a full report of your investigation and recommendations so these abuses will cease, so those accountable will be brought to justice, so those people harmed will have restitution, and so appropriate laws will be enacted to ensure the prosecution of offenders and their superiors.
