Since 2014 the Japanese Canadian Working Group (JCWG) has been working to seek justice for the many survivors of abuse by Gordon Goichi Nakayama. While the Anglican Church gave an official apology in 2015 and his abuse became more widely known, the JCWG has recently joined with the NAJC to seek restitution for Nakayama’s clergy sexual abuse and the decades-long hiding of that abuse.
COUNSELLING HELP IS AVAILABLE!
Are you a survivor, or has Mr. Nakayama’s clergy sexual abuse affected you because you knew one of his victims, possibly as a family member or friend? The JCWG is ready to support you. We welcome you to share your story with us. If you are ok with sharing your story publicly, it may support others to do the same.
We also reach out to anyone who wants to talk with a counsellor. The Diocese of Calgary guarantees free counselling for those who have been harmed by Mr. Nakayama. Although your name will not be shared with the Diocese, we will need your name, the name of your chosen counsellor and their contact info. For more information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
