In Memoriam: Founder of SNAP

Barbara Blaine founded SNAP--the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests--in 1988.  It now has 20,000 members around the world.

The cause of her death Sunday was a condition resulting from a sudden tear in a blood vessel in her heart, her family said in a statement Monday.


Her work goes on though she is not with us.

The film Spotlight showcased newspaper reporters reporting on work by SNAP and others in abuse by priests, covered up by bishops, in the Boston area.

The documentary The Keepers, available on Netflix, reveals a similar abuse ring in Baltimore.
