JESUIT PRIESTS AND BROTHERS OF THE NORTHEAST PROVINCE (INCLUDING FORDHAM UNIVERSITY) CONTINUE TO RE-VICTIMIZE A SEXUAL ABUSE VICTIM OF A JESUIT PRIEST
Jesuits of the Northeast Province, based on the upper eastside of Manhattan, who administer Fordham University in the Bronx, New York, continue to re-victimize Neal E. Gumpel, a childhood sexual abuse victim of Fr. Roy Alan Drake, SJ, a deceased serial pedophile Jesuit priest, by refusing to reasonably settle his claim
The Jesuit priests and brothers of the Northeast Province admit to having credible information from approximately five (5) persons (besides the victim) about Neal E. Gumpel’s childhood sexual abuse by Fr. Roy Alan Drake, SJ, and still refuse to settle Neal E. Gumpel’s claim reasonably
A demonstration and leafleting alerting the media, Fordham University students, parents, faculty, and staff, and the general public that the Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) has insulted and re-victimized a childhood sexual abuse victim of a Jesuit priest by refusing to reasonably settle his credible claim
Saturday, August 26, 2017, from 3:00 PM until 4:30 PM
On the public sidewalk in front of the main entrance to Fordham University, 2691 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, New York 10458 (across from the entrance to the New York Botanical Garden)
Neal E. Gumpel; his wife, Helen Gumpel, and members of Road to Recovery, Inc., a non-profit charity based in New Jersey that assists victims of sexual abuse and their families, including its co-founder and President, Robert M. Hoatson, Ph.D.
Neal E. Gumpel was a high school student and a minor child when he was sexually abused by a Jesuit priest, Fr. Roy Alan Drake, SJ, at Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, Maine. Fr. Roy Drake, SJ, was a professor at Maine Maritime Academy and at all times presented himself as a priest and member of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). In fact, Fr. Roy Drake, SJ, wore the priest’s collar and clerical clothing when Neal E. Gumpel arrived on the campus of Maine Maritime Academy. The Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) has found Neal E. Gumpel’s claim of having been sexually abused by Fr. Roy Drake, SJ, credible, but they refuse to reasonably settle the claim against Fr. Roy Drake, SJ, and they continue to insult and re-victimize Neal E. Gumpel. Demonstrators will call on the Jesuits and Fordham University, where Fr. Roy Drake, SJ, was a professor for many years, to do the right thing and treat Neal E. Gumpel with compassion, fairness, and justice
