About The Initiative
Restore Our Humanity's primary focus on this initiative is to provide a safe place for all survivors to join, to talk, to be heard, and to be believed.
We are assembling volunteers and people in the healing arts to help with counseling (if needed) and to provide general support and a foundation to help survivors heal.
We have found many survivors become isolated and are abandoned when they emerge as victims of sexual abuse and subsequent cover–ups of their abuse, which from our findings, seem to be very prevalent in the culture of the LDS Church.
We strive to provide the survivors with a voice to be heard, and if they desire, media and resources to have their stories told.
Some survivors may wish to pursue legal recourse. Restore Our Humanity has a legal team gathering data and interviewing those who wish to stand up to these violations and pursue justice. Our legal team will discuss their rights and what options are available to the survivors.
Sexual abuse cases are usually settled quietly and secured with harsh non-disclosure agreements. This may bring justice to some, but the non-disclosures result in silence with the world never knowing what truly happened.
Restore Our Humanity will not participate in any lawsuits we will not sign any non-disclosure agreements. We are committed to those who have the courage and the fortitude to come forward. Survivors must be heard, and the truth must be told.
The ultimate goal is to get the facts out to the public and hopefully see the LDS Church served some justice and have the Church make amends by telling the truth. We also hope to see the LDS Church immediately implement reasonable, prudent, and humane policies to stop these heinous and in-humane intrusions on human beings.
