#ChurchToo Hashtag Emerges in Light of Sexual Assault Claims

We have heard of the #MeToo campaign, but now the #ChurchToo hashtag has emerged where those who have been sexually assaulted by members of the cloth are speaking out.

TIME reports that Hannah Paasch and Emily Joy kicked off the hashtag, which prompted Twitter users to share their stories of sexual abuse experienced in the church.

By urging those who have been abused and sexually assaulted in church settings, the hashtag’s founders hope to bring awareness and voices to an issue that goes largely unaddressed.
