Citizens to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse


This is to alert you to the Public Hearing of the Joint Committee on
Education on Sept. 4th, 2019, 11am - 5pm, Room A-1, MA State House.
Testimony on bills S.312 and S.13 will be heard.

MassKids urges every citizen to voice their support for these two critical
child sexual abuse prevention bills introduced by Senator Joan Lovely
(D-Salem). [1]S312 would mandate child sexual abuse prevention education in
public and private schools and youth organizations and require them to
adopt policies, including a code of conduct, to address the problem. It
would establish a standard protocol for screening prospective new
employees; prohibit schools from aiding and abetting employees engaged in
sexual misconduct from securing employment in another school, and ensure
legal protections from liability for schools sharing information about
misconduct with other schools.

[2]S313 would enable a victim of child sexual abuse to file civil charges
against their alleged abuser up to three years after they first make the
connection between the abuse and the harm suffered as a result. Duly
licensed mental health professionals would be required to attest to when
the connection was made. The bill would provide that in any civil action,
youth under 19, or under 22 if a special needs person, would be incapable
of consenting to sexual relations with a person over 21 employed by a
school, state department, or private institution that serves youth.
Penalties are also included.

Anyone is welcome to testify at the hearing. Testimony will be limited to
three minutes per person. You can also submit testimony in writing.
