Child Abuse Survivor Rights
People harmed by childhood sexual and physical abuse are often not able to understand the effects of trauma until they are adults, which is often too late to seek compensation from their abusers through civil litigation. Necrason Group successfully boosted lobbying to repeal the statute of limitations that blocked survivors’ access to the Courts. These laws both helped Vermont survivors and created momentum for the 2022 passage of a federal law eliminating limits to justice for child abuse victims.
