If you were sexually abused as a child in California, no matter how old you were, no matter when the abuse occurred, you still have rights and can still take action, but time is running out. Survivors of sexual abuse in California have until December 31 to file a lawsuit. 

It’s Time For Truth

It’s time for your voice to be heard. It’s time to hold institutions accountable for covering up decades of sexual abuse. It’s your time. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse in California, a new law gives you the chance to expose your offender and pursue justice publicly or anonymously, as a John or Jane Doe. This includes abuse committed by:

  • A priest or other member of the clergy

  • A Boy Scout leader, Scoutmaster, or other BSA volunteer

  • A teacher, coach, or other authority figure

It’s time for healing. It’s time for accountability.  It’s time for you to share what happened to you to help prevent similar abuse from happening to others.

California Child Victims Act

Starting January 1, 2020, the California Child Victims Act (AB 218) opens a three-year window for California child sexual assault survivors of any age to file claims against their perpetrators and the institutions responsible, no matter when the abuse occurred.
