In 1989, Barbara Blaine founded the S.N.A.P. (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) non-profit with the mission of representing the long ignored, silenced, and invisible abuse victims of the Catholic Church. Today, the S.N.A.P. organization continues to fight the sexual injustices of the Church on a public scale, working on behalf of “over 12,000 members and 65 chapters across country,” says Zach Hiner, 25, Administrator for the S.N.A.P national office based in Chicago, blocks away from the Chicago Brown Line stop.
