Safe Horizon Responds to the Assembly Announcing it Plans to Pass the Adult Survivors Act

In response to the breaking news that the New York State Assembly intends to pass the Adult Survivors Act, Safe Horizon CEO Liz Roberts issued the following statement:

“Today’s announcement that the Assembly plans to pass the Adult Survivors Act is an absolute earthquake for survivors’ rights in New York. Courageous survivors of sexual abuse told their stories, relived their trauma, took time away from their lives and loved ones in the endless hope that they could make the world a better place. And hope prevailed. That is power. That is strength. And this victory is echoing across the nation: what happened matters. Safe Horizon is grateful to our coalition and community of survivors, advocates, and lawmakers – especially our bill sponsors and champions in the Legislature, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Senator Brad Hoylman and Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal – as well as the Speaker of the Assembly, Carl Heastie for making this a reality. We look forward to this momentous vote,” said Liz Roberts, CEO of Safe Horizon.
