Over on Canon212, I came across the Complicit Clergy website.  Here is a brief description found on their "About" page:

Quote:In late July 2018, a small group of Catholic laymen gathered to discuss the Theodore McCarrick sex scandal. A mixture of emotions was in the room that day: sorrow, frustration, anger, disappointment and disgust. How was it that Theodore McCarrick had been allowed to abuse so many young men over multiple decades?

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishop’s 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People was a failure, possibly by design. The bishops had consciously removed themselves from the scope of the “zero tolerance” policy. Since then, they have allowed the moral rot in the hierarchy to fester. It was clear to us that the Catholic bishops could no longer be trusted to police themselves. We became convinced that a laity-led initiative was required to cleanse the Church and establish a culture of accountability.
