This morning, on social media, the SFLA/SFLAction team learned of charges filed against a former employee Ruben Verastigui, related to child pornography.
Ruben Verastigui worked for Students for Life from Sept. 5, 2014 to Dec. 2, 2016, following some engagement when he was a student himself. He worked in an office doing graphic design and had no oversight or management of students. We have no knowledge of the allegations that we learned about today, the events of which took place after his tenure. Students for Life and SFLAction have numerous policies and practices in place to protect students and believes that crimes against children must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Students for Life and Students for Life Action works every day to protect children and condemns those who harm them in any way.
