    ALBANY — Actor Corey Feldman, who says he was sexually abused as a child, is heading to the state Capitol on Wednesday to push state Senate Republicans to pass a bill that would make it easier for survivors in New York to seek justice as adults.

    The star of “The Goonies” and “Stand by Me” is set to be joined by former USA Volleyball player Sarah Powers-Barnhard, who was one of at least six underage girls who charged in a class-action lawsuit that they were abused by Illinois coach Rick Butler.

    Feldman and Powers-Barnhard will take part in a press conference with advocates to push the Senate GOP to allow a vote on the Child Victims Act this year and then lobby various lawmakers in their offices.

    “As a survivor of child sex abuse and whose best friend lost his life over this, I have made it my life’s mission to help others find justice,” Feldman said in a statement to the Daily News.
