Meet the Journalist: Anita Hofschneider

Guam, a U.S. territory in the western Pacific Ocean, has been rocked by hundreds of lawsuits alleging sexual abuse by multiple priests. The island is home to a majority Catholic population, including indigenous Chamorros, whose social lives revolve around the church and Catholic traditions.  

Anita Hofschneider of Honolulu Civil Beat explores why it has taken so long for Guam to address sexual abuse in the church and how the community is responding.
