Survivor advocacy groups and law firms on Tuesday are making a concerted push to raise awareness of the one-year look back period opening this week for victims and survivors of childhood sexual abuse to file civil lawsuits.

The 12-month window begins on Wednesday to file lawsuits.

The group Safe Horizons on Tuesday unveiled a public awareness campaign with a digital billboard and video, which features state lawmakers who are also abuse survivors: Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, Assemblywomn Yuh-Line Niou, Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz and Assemblywoman Rodneyse Bichotte.

“The Child Victims Act and the opening of its lookback window provides a monumental win for survivors of childhood sexual abuse who now have the opportunity to seek justice in their own way,” said Ariel Zwang, the CEO of Safe Horizon. “We want survivors to know their options and are proud to help them determine what is best for them.”

Law firms this week plan to announce lawsuits that are being filed by abuse survivors, with some expected to filed against major institutions including the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts of America.

One firm, Jeff Anderson & Associates, plans to announce the filing of more than 200 lawsuits under the law by people who were sexually abused by clergy members.

“This is a momentous time for courageous survivors who have waited so long for justice in New York,” Anderson said. “They now have an opportunity to take back power stolen from them when they were kids and start to heal.”
