(I've also posted this on Reddit /r/ExJW)
Mediaworks in New Zealand are working on a series on JWs and the Child Abuse issue.
The people behind this project are keen to get support to change of the terms of reference for the upcoming New Zealand Royal Commission into Historical Abuse in State Care.
We are asking that those who have been affected by sexual abuse, from the Watchtower, could show their support so that we can get the Commission to look at faith based institutions like the JWs - We are wanting signatures from all, male and female. Please download it, sign it, take a pic of it/scan it and PM it back to me on Reddit or email it to [email protected] Do keep the original safe in case we need it.
Although it concerns New Zealand, they're also taking signed letters from ExJWs in Australia who have been effected. If you can get this to as many as possible it would be such a big help for this project.
It will be kept in safe keeping and confidential and will be passed on to Mediaworks for their story. Full confidence guaranteed - No names will be used on the programs.
We know this sort of thing could be triggering and very painful. We have an opportunity to make a statement, not only to the government but also to show to the WT is not clean or clear of the abuse that has affected many.
