One local woman's fight to change the statute of limitations in case of child sexual abuse is heading to Harisburg.
Michele Gonsman of Duncansville, who is a victim herself, is trying to fill a bus with victims for a rally Monday, April 11th at the Capitol rotunda. Spurred on by the recent catholic church priest abuse scandal,  Gonsman has set up meetings with elected leaders from Blair and Cambria counties.
As Gonsman says, "By doing this, I've gotten so many messages on Facebook, or emails - just people that I have known or don't even know are reaching out to me and telling me their story and I said to my friend the other day - this is so much bigger than us."
Gonsman's busload will join in the Crime Victims Rally Day.  Her GoFundMe page is accepting donations to offset the bus expense so the victims can ride for free.
