Greta E. Larson is one of the three co-founders of Pokrov.org, along with her mother, Cappy Larson, and her friend, Melanie Jula Sakoda. The three women had spoken up about the way an abuse case in their local parish, Holy Trinity Cathedral in San Francisco, was mishandled by church officials, and their lives were forever changed by the resulting backlash. Melanie and and the Larsons realized how lucky they were to have had each other during this time, and they wanted to reach out to others who were going through similar experiences without that advantage. The website’s mission is to support people who have been hurt in the Church, whether by its leaders or by its members.
