I also have a page of My Story, with resources and links. I also have a Blog page that does not have any recent postings as it has taken a back seat to my book writing.
The website has two major goals, providing resources to survivors to help them on their path of healing. The second major goal is the promotion of the Survivors Movement, as a Movement, to build its connection and collaboration between and among survivor groups. Presently we see two major continents of collaboration, the Keep Kids Safe coalition which SNAP is part of, and the coalition circling around the Me Too Movement organizations. In addition, there are hundreds of organizations operating independently.
