Phillip James Saviano was an advocate for survivors of sexual abuse in the Catholic church in the United States. In the early 1960s, Saviano, a native of Massachusetts, was abused for a year and a half by a local priest. After reading about the priest molesting other children in another state, Saviano came out thirty years later, becoming one of the first church sexual abuse survivors to do so. He filed a lawsuit against his local diocese, which led to the discovery of more evidence of abuse. His work eventually led to The Boston Globe releasing a Pulitzer Prize-winning series of articles revealing the sex abuse epidemic at the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, which was depicted in the 2015 Academy Award-winning film Spotlight. He formed the New England chapter of the Survivors Network of Priests Abused, and after coming public in 1992, he spent the rest of his life uncovering child abuse within the Catholic church and campaigning for survivors until his death.
