Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) / Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP)

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests is the largest, oldest and most active support group for women and men wounded by religious authority figures (priests, ministers, bishops, deacons, nuns and others). It is an independent and confidential organization, with no connections with the church or church officials. The Center for Constitutional Rights is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is a non-profit legal and educational organization committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.

In collaboration with communications teams at SNAP and the CCR, Riptide garnered instant global coverage for an historic filing in the International Criminal Court that aims to hold the Pope and high-level Vatican officials accountable for the systematic and wide-spread cover up of clergy sex-abuse. Following a news conference in the Hague, survivors and their CCR attorneys engaged in a multi-city press tour in the U.S. and Europe, calling for survivors to step forward and an end to the cycle of predation.
