Coleen Dion – Nominee – 2020

Coleen’s campaigning and leadership have emerged from her membership of a group for Church Survivors of Sexual Abuse and her work supports and stands up for those who have experienced sexual abuse within the context of institutional Christianity. Excluded from ordination for speaking out, and excommunicated from the Church for counter-protesting Catholic anti-abortion protests and protesting the lenient treatment of her abuser, she has begun her own ministry work to create a healing space for other survivors. She speaks out about sexual violence against women and girls at protests, in Synods and in Churches. She is the founder of AGITATE and works for Church Action on Sexual Abuse Issues.
