Posted Saturday, September 28, 2019 on social media by PEC supporter, Melody Mills:
On July 19, 2019 I stood in front of the Thunderbird Ward building in Glendale, AZ, for the first time in years. This was the first building where I was exposed to one-on-one interviews as a child in the Mormon church. I was fortunate to not be repeatedly probed with multiple sexually explicit questions or be abused, as too many others have experienced 💔 However, I was still groomed to believe that discussing uncomfortable, intimate information with grown men whom I wasn’t close to but who were held up as authority figures over me, was safe and acceptable. As an adult, I now understand how dangerous and unacceptable that practice was and is. May children and adults no longer be groomed or led to believe that unsafe practices are okay. I raise my flag for them and for the hope of improvement in churches and organizations
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Sign the new Petition:
Climb a mountain, hilltop or driveway. Unfurl a banner and share it.
Come to the March for the Children on October 5, 2019 in Salt Lake City.
THIS IS THE BIG ONE.
If we have 5,000 marchers, the national media will be all over it.
Institutions will be warned. Huge awareness will be raised.
Children will be protected. Past victims will take solace.
