**Please note that this episode contains some explicit descriptions of child sexual abuse.**
On this episode of en(gender)ed, our guest is Gary Greenberg, childhood sexual abuse survivor, activist and founder of the Fighting for Children PAC, also known as Protect NY Kids, which was pivotal in helping NYS pass Child Victims Act legislation in 2019 that extended the Statute of Limitations for child sexual abuse, in both civil and criminal cases. Gary is here to speak with us about his experience as an activist and the long road he traveled to help pass this significant legislation, helping to provide some deterrence and accountability for the 150 kids that are sexually abused in NYS every day.
During our conversation, Gary and I referenced the following resources:
- Eleanor's Legacy
- New York Progressive Action Network
- Gary's role in defeating the IDC incumbents
- True Blue NY
- Erin's Law in NYS--child sexual abuse prevention classes in schools
- The status of Brittany's Law in NYS
