Victims of the Jehovah’s Witnesses Speak Out in This Powerful Documentary

Lloyd Evans, a former Jehovah’s Witness who now documents the Church’s various abuses, recently traveled to the Netherlands and shot a documentary about a group called Reclaimed Voices, which serves to raise awareness about the sex abuse within the religion.

This is the faith that famously says someone’s account of abuse is only taken seriously by Church elders if another person witnessed it… even though the only two people in the room may be the victim and the abuser.

I haven’t been able to watch the full two-hour film, but the portions I watched were heartbreaking and inspiring. You hear the stories of victims and how they’re trying to get the Dutch government to take action on their behalf. (Spoiler: Their efforts are not in vain!)

If you get a chance to watch the movie, please let us know in the comments if any particular moments stood out to you!
