Guam - The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests is encouraging island residents to provide testimony in support of legislation that would require local clerics to disclose and report child abuse, neglect or sexual abuse to the public. No one showed up yesterday to testify on Bill 372 that went up for a public hearing.
SNAP's Joelle Casteix commented that it is their sincere hope that the citizens of Guam speak out and support this one small step to help keep kids safe.
The 30th Guam Legislature is still accepting written testimony if you would like to submit.
