PLATTSBURGH — A Minnesota-based firm on Tuesday launched a database it hopes will aid child abuse survivors, law enforcement and fellow attorneys in their efforts to seek justice from the Catholic Church in New York state.

The virtual event hosted by Jeff Anderson & Associates featured a breakdown of statistics for all Catholic dioceses in the state, including the Diocese of Ogdensburg, which spans the North Country.

Anderson said the purpose of the report was, in part, “to identify those institutions and Catholic bishops across this country who have been complicit in allowing children to have been abused and to do what we can with each survivor, one at a time, to make sure that we are doing something today to protect kids tomorrow.”
