Thank you, Jon Mitchell and The Japan Times, for writing and publishing the article on May 13 following up on the American School in Japan sexual abuse scandal.

Both the international and native communities who had their children in contact with Jack Moyer need to know about this sad history, so that survivors of his abuse can know they are not alone and seek help.

Secondly, we hope more articles like this will help pressure the ASIJ administration to do more of the right things by seeking out and helping survivors. We also want accountability from anyone, who may have known about the abuses and did nothing, or worse, swept them under the rug. In order to have this, an independent investigation is the only solution.
