Group also ‘outs’ three publicly accused clerics

Victims urge others to contact Attorney General

Holding signs and childhood pictures at a sidewalk news conference, clergy abuse victims and an attorney will disclose
–that more than 50 women have now reported being molested by an Oakland priest, and
–the names of – and details about – at least three publicly and credibly accused abusive clerics who have been left off the diocese’s official ‘accused clerics.

They will also
–urge others who may be “suffering in silence, to also step forward, and
–push Oakland Catholic officials to do “aggressive outreach” to those who may have be hurt by clerics to report to law enforcement, and
–launch a special outside investigation into who in the church knew of or suspected and ignored or hid Fr. Breen’s crimes.
