Save Our Children Meeting
The Rockaway chapter of the Voice of the Faithful will sponsor a meeting for all residents of the Rockaway Peninsula on Thursday, October 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the American Legion Hall. The theme of the meeting is “Save Our Children” and its intent is to amend the current New York State statute of limitations. Currently the statute prevents charges from being filed if more than five years have passed since the alleged sexual abuse or five years passed the victim’s 18th birthday.
Legislators Audrey Pheffer, Michele Titus, Malcolm Smith and Councilman Joe Addabbo have been invited. Democratic leaders Geraldine Chapey and Lew Simon have also been invited to attend.
For more information on the meeting contact Rita Shea at 718-318-7432 or Vera Powers at 718-945-4239. The American Legion Hall is located on Beach 92 Street and Rockaway Freeway.
