NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Julianne Moore is joining the chorus of advocates calling on New York state lawmakers to allow victims of child sexual abuse to seek justice from the courts decades later.

Moore said in an op-ed in the Daily News on Friday that she was “shocked” to learn that New York is one of the least victim-friendly states in the nation.

Advocates for survivors of sex abuse have urged New York’s state legislature to pass the Child Victims Act.

The act would extend criminal and civil statutes of limitations. It also would create a one-year window for victims to file civil lawsuits against their alleged abusers even if the current statute of limitations on civil suits has passed.
