Power to the People: The Role of Canon Law with Tom Doyle

Canon lawyer, Tom Doyle, offers invaluable insight from his 35 years of experience working for justice for victim-survivors and their families into how canon law upholds a clerical system and culture in the Church, which perpetuates a cycle of abuse and coverup. He discuss which canons in particular lay a foundation for clericalism and argues that the entire church structure — including canon law — must be radically reformed if the violence and abuse of people and power is to stop.
