Location: Radisson Hotel Duluth (Location Map ) conference room
Event: Verne Wagner- Survivors’ Network for those Abused by Priests

Verne Wagner is a Duluth resident, fisherman, and Rescue Squad member.  He has worked as an Esalen massage therapist and a comedian, and he has experienced abuse at the hands of a priest.  He served as North East Minnesota Director of "the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests," an organization he has worked with since 1996.  It is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims.  The network was founded in 1988 and has more than 20,000 members.  Despite the word “priest” in the title, members have been molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers.  The website is SNAPnetwork.org and the current Northern Minnesota director is Megan Peterson.
