Roger Canaff is a recognized legal and policy expert on the response to sexual abuse and violence against women and children, including gun violence. He appears on national news outlets as a veteran prosecutor and active consultant with regard to these crimes. Above all, he believes a change in current thinking is necessary for both prevention and an effective response. In particular, he is a strong advocate for the reform of institutions (academic, social, athletic, cultural and religious) where child sexual abuse and the abuse of persons with disabilities are concerned. Absent foundational changes, we will continue to bear witness to devastating predatory behavior against the most vulnerable among us. The Sandusky and Nassar cases most recently are only the latest examples of this kind of tragic institutional failure.
