About our Survivors of Sexual Abuse Initiative


  Restore Our Humanity’s primary focus on this initiative is to provide a safe place for all survivors to join, to talk, to be heard, and to be believed.


  We are assembling volunteers and people in the healing arts to help with counseling, if needed, and to provide general support and a foundation to help survivors heal.


  We have found many survivors become isolated and are abandoned when they emerge as victims of sexual abuse and subsequent cover—ups of their abuse, which from our findings, seem to be very prevalent in the rape crisis environment.


  We strive to provide the survivors with a voice to be heard, and if they desire, media and resources to have their stories told.


   Some survivors may wish to pursue legal recourse. Restore Our Humanity has a legal team gathering data and interviewing those who wish to stand up to these violations and pursue justice. Our legal team will discuss their rights and what options are available to the survivors.


  Sexual abuse cases are usually settled quietly and secured with harsh non–disclosure agreements. This may bring justice to some, but the non–disclosures results in silence with the world never knowing what truly happened.


  Restore Our Humanity will not participate in any lawsuits——we will not sign any non—disclosure agreements. We are committed to those who have the courage and the fortitude to come forward. Survivors must be heard, and the truth must be told.


  Our ultimate goal is to get the facts out to the public and be an organization that reaches out to and helps victims of rape culture that is prevelant in many organizations. As we have recently seen within the BYU community and within the LDS Church community, many rape victims are suppressed in coming forward and getting action to the assaults that they have endured. We would also like to see these organizations implement reasonable, prudent, and humane policies to stop these heinous and inhumane intrusions on human beings.

Adult Survivors Can Help Prevent Child Sexual Abuse by Going Public


Child Sexual Abuse: Reported cases in Utah nearly 3x higher than U.S. Average[1]



Survivors need to know other survivors are going public with their abuse, to help the public know about the child sexual abusers who are still free to abuse children.

Restore Our Humanity has taken the initiative to begin the means of support and of justice for those in our communities who have been the targets of sexual predators and abusers. The truth must be told, and the organizations that have sheltered the abusers must be held accountable.

If you or your child has been a victim of sexual abuse by a person acting in the capacity of a trusted individual on behalf of either The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or The Boy Scouts of America, we would like to talk to you.

BECAUSE OF THE COMPLEXITIES OF THESE ACTIONS, WE ARE SEEKING ONLY VICTIMS OF THE ABOVE NAMED ORGANIZATIONS AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER, DEPENDING ON THE OUTCOME OF THESE CASES, THERE MAY BE FURTHER ACTIONS AS WE MOVE FORWARD.

Restore Our Humanity: Sexual Abuse Initiative

Restore Our Humanity will be working on an ongoing project to address, expose and stop once and for all the rampant child abuse, abuse enablement and abuse cover up that has been taking place within the LDS Church and Boy Scouts of America.
This project will consist of 3 parts:

  1. 1) A probable lawsuit to hold the organizations responsible for covering up crimes and not reporting these to the authorities, and thereby becoming accomplices to criminal actions. If successful this could lead to civil actions and further litigation.

  2. 2) Media and documentary projects to allow Survivors to tell their stories and let the truth be heard.

  3. 3) A resource pool of healing professionals to be made available to all survivors and family who come forward in order to put them in touch with the best care, treatment and support for the duration of the project and beyond. Sexual Abuse Inititative

LDS Church statement on Responsibility for Abuse

The victim must do all in his or her power to stop the abuse. Most often, the victim is innocent because of being disabled by fear or the power of authority of the offender. At some point in time, however, the Lord may prompt a victim to recognize a degree of responsibility for abuse. Your priesthood leader will help assess your responsibility so that, if needed, it can be addressed. Otherwise the seeds of guilt will remain and sprout into bitter fruit. Yet no matter what degree of responsibility, from absolutely none to increasing consent, the healing power of the atonement of Jesus Christ can provide a complete cure.

Apostle Richard G. Scott "Healing the Tragic Scars of Abuse," General Conference, Ensign, May 1992


All Families Coalition

As a response to the World Congress of Families visit in Salt Lake City this coming October, Restore Our Humanity has chosen to give a voice to the families in Utah that may feel disenfranchised or marginalized by those who promote a message of exclusion and disapproval. 20% of the children living in Utah live in single parent families and there are many families who live and prosper outside of non-traditional families. We have chosen to stand for these families and to give them a voice. We have established the All Families Coalition to speak for and on behalf of those who feel disparaged by those who call themselves 'pro-family' groups. All Families


World Congress of Families

The World Congress of Families is a United States coalition that promotes Christian right values internationally. It opposes same–sex marriage, pornography, and abortion, while supporting a society built on "the voluntary union of a man and a woman in a lifelong covenant of marriage".WCF comprises organizations in several countries, and most of its member partners are strongly active campaigners for pro–life positions and specific Christian views on marriage that oppose same–sex marriage. WCF was formed in 1997 and is active worldwide, regularly organizing "large international ‘pro-family’ conventions". Its opposition to gay marriage and abortion has attracted criticism. It was added to the list of organizations designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as anti–LGBT hate groups in February 2014 for its involvement with the 2013 Russian LGBT propaganda law and opposing LGBT rights internationally. See more at WorldCongressOfFamilies.org


CR Tracker

The next issue that we will most likely be looking at in Utah will be legislation which may potentially change our public accommodations laws. [Within U.S. law, public accommodations are generally defined as entities, both public and private, that are used by the public. Examples include retail stores, rental establishments and service establishments, as well as educational institutions, recreational facilities and service centers. Private clubs and religious institutions were exempt. However, in 1984, the United States Supreme Court declared the previously all-male Junior Chamber International, a chamber of Commerce organization for persons between the ages of eighteen and thirty-six, to be a public accommodation, which compelled the admission of women into the ranks.] Restore Our Humanity has developed the CR Tracker so that all Utah citizens have a tool to use to report and record possible infractions of person and civil rights in the realm of public accommodation. The results of this program will be compiled and made available when debates on this subject being with the legislature.


BSA (Boy Scouts of America)

For a healthy society to prosper and move forward, communities and the organizations attached to them must abandon exclusion and prejudices. The Boy Scouts of America has moved our society just a little closer to that end. Estimates say over 95% of the Boy Scout troops in Utah are sponsored by the LDS Church. We applaud the effort and the support the LDS Church has provided to this fundamental program. But these numbers show that there is a significant population of young people that are left behind and neglected. These are young people who could grow and benefit tremendously with participation in an organization that has become such an integral part of our communities and our good and healthy society. These young people deserve to be included in membership in the BSA. Restore Our Humanity has elected to take the first step to sponsor a new scouting troop and provide the backing to begin a new chapter in the Boy Scouts of Utah and bring this integral institution to the underserved but well deserving population. Our scout troop will be built upon a progressive, non-denominational open, affirming and fully inclusive policy.We are in early stages of preparing our application and look forward to completing the process and beginning this new and exciting opportunity for our organization and our community.

These families include same sex couples, those with members who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, identify as transgender (LGBT), or have exceptional gender identity/expression, families with mixed ethnic, racial and religious identities, street families (homeless youth families), families led by elders, adoptive, differently-abled, matriarchal, multi-generational families, and others.

The executive board of Restore Our Humanity

Mark Lawrence is the founder and director of Restore Our Humanity. He helped bring Restore into existence from a small discussion group that began in a coffee shop in July 2012. In that time, he has helped build and develop Restore Our Humanity into a recognized non-profit organization that is focused on Human Rights in Utah. As a proponent of the Humanist philosophy, he has come to recognize that a society that permits marginalization of any members of our communities; is destined for failure, most of all those who are demeaned, abused and injured under the guise of religion. "Religious discrimination is the worst of all social exclusions and causes more harm because it is accepted by society, and therefore, becomes the most destructive and brutal of all". As an advocate for those who are empowered and wish to stand up to misinterpreted religious presumption, Mark has lead Restore Our Humanity into a path of becoming advocates and a voice for those with the strength and a passion to come forward and speak for those who deserve the same respect and dignity that all human beings deserve.

She, along with her two teenage children, settled into suburbia.However, after experiencing California’s fight for human rights and marriage equality during Prop 8, and enjoying the advantage of raising her children in a culturally diverse environment, living in an area where her family felt the exclusion of being different from the majority was often hurtful. After attending a fundraiser for Restore Our Humanity and meeting the Board of Directors, Carolyn knew she had found not only the family and community she was seeking, but a way to work with others dedicated to bringing positive changes for the betterment of all Utahns.Carolyn also enjoys sharing her love of textile art with others and is an advocate for the blind and visually impaired.

Lauren@RestoreOurHumanity.org

Restore Our Humanity started as a small discussion group in Salt Lake City in July 2012. As any authentic grass-roots group begins, Restore started with a small group of volunteers with a single vision in mind; to begin the process of bringing Utah’s amendment 3 to an end and to bring Marriage Equality to Utah. Restore Our Humanity took up the baton as it was handed to us, in a marathon for equal rights that began in the late 1960s at bar in New York City called The Stonewall Inn. We passed the baton to the next generation of runners when the Federal Courts struck down Utah's Amendment 3 and declared Marriage Equality for all of Utah's residents. Today we stand as committed as ever to helping all citizens of Utah as we move forward with the eventual goal of unrestricted civil rights, basic human dignity and unconditional equality for all citizens of Utah and all of Utah’s families. There is still work to be done but together we can make Utah better for everyone.

RESTORE OUR HUMANITY TAKES ON SYSTEMIC CHILD ABUSE WITHIN LDS CHURCH AND BSA:

Survivors around the globe offered support and resources

Salt Lake City, UT — Members of the 501c4 human rights organization Restore Our Humanity and their peers within the academic community have for years noticed some startling trends. There is a child abuse problem in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and within Boy Scouts of America. In Utah, and in other States with large LDS populations, there is evidence of a culture of non-reporting and of protecting perpetrators. This has kept justice from being served and has impeded the rights of survivors by preventing access to counseling, treatment, and to due process. It is the firm belief of Restore Our Humanity (ROH) and its supporters that the time has come for these trends to be faced and corrected and for the survivors of abuse to be offered healing. It is for this reason that ROH has begun a comprehensive program to provide resources to survivors of child abuse, especially childhood sexual abuse. ROH is seeking to assist survivors of abuse whose perpetrators were representative of the LDS Church or BSA or whose abuse was covered up or kept from authorities or due process in any way by representatives of these organizations.Survivors or individuals representing minor children who are survivors can register their experiences with ROH at restoreourhumanity.org by clicking on the yellow "Survivors of Sexual Abuse" button and filling out the form on the corresponding page or by calling the Survivor Hotline at 801-215-9748. Doing so in no way commits the survivor to participation in any of Restore Our Humanity’s programs only lets ROH know that the survivor is interested in learning more as programs are made available; at which point the survivor may choose to participate in any/all or none of the programs offered. Anonymity, unless the survivor chooses to go public with their story, is of utmost priority.

Restore Our Humanity has retained the pro bono consultative service of lawyer Matthew Long of Rowley, Chapman & Barney, Ltd., a firm located in Arizona (Matt Long is featured here speaking about child sex abuse cases with Mormon Stories Podcast host John Dehlin). Long and his team will be providing comprehensive legal support to survivors in order to help them better understand their rights as survivors and if necessary choose the best path of support and possible litigation consistent with pursuing those rights. It is the goal of ROH that any services offered or litigation pursued may be done at no cost to the survivors.

In addition to legal support ROH is consulting with national support groups, trauma care professionals and other experts in the field to put together resources for survivors for the duration of this program and beyond. Volunteers, especially in the healing arts professions and especially those with trauma and/or child abuse experience, are being recruited now. Individuals interesting is volunteering are asked to contact Volunteer Coordinator Karen Crist at Karen@restoreourhumanity.org. The next volunteer informational meeting will be held Saturday February 27th, at the Salt Lake City Public Library at 1pm MST. If you are not able to make the event, please contact Karen for more.

Finally ROH is looking for the media's help in urging victims of abuse to come forward and is teaming with media and documentarians nationwide to offer survivors, who feel ready, the opportunity to share their stories with the world.

It is the hope of ROH that through believing first, then providing survivors with whatever resources they need, that the cycles of child abuse that have gone on in the LDS Church and in BSA for far too long can be addressed. Restore Our Humanity invites members and leaders of both communities, who have shown such great compassion and commitment to community activism in the past, to join ROH in this endeavor, to encourage their loved ones who have suffered to come forward for help, to love those survivors in their communities through this often difficult process of healing and to themselves commit to bravely confronting this difficult issue head on. Together we can finally offer voice, justice, and healing to survivors and we can do the hard work so that our communities become safer for our children.
