The lifelong impacts of childhood sexual abuse will be the topic of a public forum from 7 to 10 p.m. Jan. 30 at the Child Advocacy Center, 768 Delaware Ave.

The event, “Enlighten & Empower: An Evening with Survivors,” is sponsored by the Buffalo Survivors Group, formed by five men who have filed lawsuits under the Child Victims Act alleging sexual abuse by Buffalo Diocese priests.

It is the second in a series of discussions aimed at educating the public about the psychological, emotional and physical harm caused by sexual abuse. It will include stories from survivors of abuse, as well as questions and answers with the audience.
