What is #ChurchToo?

#ChurchToo is a movement that started on social media to bring to light the sexual harassment, abuse, and assault that happens within churches/faith communities. It is a collective story of individuals who have been harmed. It is also the story of the failure of religious communities and institutions.

It is a testament to institutional betrayal, victim blaming and shaming, and the silencing of victims/survivors.
