ABWE Video Apology from Interim President Al Cockrell

Please note that contrary to interim President Al Cockrell’s statement above, ABWE has been under investigation for 5 years, not just 3. The 2-year GRACE investigation, which the Pii Report states (p. 130-143) was plagued by the same obstruction and delays from ABWE that theirs encountered, was ended by ABWE under Al Cockrell’s leadership just weeks prior to its conclusion in 2013. ABWE continues to state that GRACE was terminated due to “victim concerns,” however victim concerns regarding Pii over the 3 years that Pii was investigating were ignored by ABWE personnel, including the child safety officer Nancy Hepworth, VP Duane Early, and the ABWE board.
