Welcome to the Mennonite Abuse Tracker, a curated clearinghouse of information and news articles on sexual abuse and violence in Mennonite and Anabaptist groups and churches. Our mission is to collect and make accessible public accounts that reveal the range of sexual violence among Anabaptist groups.
The tracker’s inspiration comes from the Abuse Tracker of BishopAccountability.org. While the tracker’s focus is currently on news stories, we intend to eventually develop an online archive of older stories that will complement the Mennonite Abuse Prevention (MAP) list.
