- Release a report containing the names and histories of over 300 perpetrators accused of sexual misconduct in the Archdiocese of Newark, Diocese of Camden, Diocese of Metuchen, Diocese of Paterson and Diocese of Trenton;
- Announce the filing of a lawsuit by a sexual abuse survivor against all of the New Jersey Catholic Bishops and the New Jersey Catholic Conference for maintaining a public hazard by keeping secret the names of all clergy accused of sexual misconduct in New Jersey;
