FLOODLIT.org compiles and publishes reports of sexual abuse or sex crimes allegedly committed by members or leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – the LDS church or Mormon church.
We also conduct research and publish reports about responses by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly referred to as the LDS church or Mormon church) to individual sex crime accusations, allegations of organizational misconduct regarding sexual abuse, and public demands for reform.
FLOODLIT is not an advocacy organization, and we take no position on possible solutions for any crisis.
Our mission is to report fairly and accurately on this important topic, and to help survivors be heard.
We launched in December 2022 with approximately 450 accused persons in our database.
As of January 1, 2023, we had over 500 cases in our database, and over 8,000 visits to our website.
Our information about each case comes from publicly available sources, such as police records, court documents or mainstream media articles. View our posting policy.
We believe this difficult topic should be FLOODLIT with fair reporting, accurate research, and intelligent discussion.
FLOODLIT is dedicated to abuse survivors everywhere. May your light never be hidden.
How can I support FLOODLIT.org?
You can give time or money. Both are appreciated. Our research is time-consuming and costs money. We’ve got to make sure every record is accurate, and we have to pay for our website hosting, obtaining court records, finding proof that someone was accused, and checking police records, just to name a few things.
Volunteer to help us in our research – simply contact us! We are looking for people who can look up information about accused persons, add information to our database and help us spread the word.
