Joelle Casteix has long been a pal of the Weekly, and not just because she's a hilarious, multitalented gal. She has been one of the most prominent Catholic Church sex-abuse survivors in Orange County, molested by some pig who's now a--I kid you not--choir director at some no-name college in the Midwest. She has also been a constant companion to other sex-abuse survivors who need a shoulder, who need someone to face off against pedophile apologists, who need someone to contact the media.
And now Casteix is taking her story to a national level by serving as one of the faces for a national campaign to help pass something called the Child Victims Act.

In California, it's currently in the state Senate.
