TN–University cancels Cosby appearance

Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priets

For immediate release Wednesday, November 26

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests ( 314 503 0003 cell, )

We are grateful that Freed-Hardmann University has canceled Bill Cosby’s appearance. Honoring credibly accused sex offenders hurts victims and deters reporting of sex crimes, thus endangering the public. We hope other venues where Cosby may appear also find the courage to do what is right and disinvite him.

We commend Memphis SNAP leader, David Brown, for speaking out and for his compassionate advocacy for crime victims.
