International Days: Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Violence

International Days: Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Violence

September 18 and 19, 2010

Our Focus: The only focus of the International Day Groups is to establish and manage our first annual International Days for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Violence.

Activities: Members of the Council will coordinate certain activities for their region or group. Numerous group and personal activities will be organized around the world to underline, recognize and acknowledge the plight, the healing and numerous issues regarding Male Survivors.

We hope that survivors worldwide will submit projects and participate. The activities will foster awareness, encourage communication and support for Male Survivors. Some activities will be for well-being. Other activities will have social, political, public relations and media components.

Who am I? I am your son, your brother, your father, your grandchild, your husband, your partner, your lover, your neighbour, your friend, your nephew, your uncle, your coworker. I am you! I am a survivor! I have kept ‘the secret’ for too long and I have suffered. On these first annual days dedicated to Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Violence I will stand and be acknowledged! I will empower myself. I will let the world know that I am not alone! I will tell the world that in Solidarity with fellow survivors I will abandon my solitude! I will heal and I will thrive! (RB)

Council: The Council established in January 2010 has representatives who are male survivors from Australia, Cambodia, Canada, France, India, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico and Latin America, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. The group has a worldwide membership in over twenty five (25) countries. Inuit and Natives of North America are also represented on the Council. A few women and non-survivors are members of the Council as Advocates of the cause. Survivors and supporters who want to join the groups may do so by signing up on our Facebook site or on our Web Page! You may want to contact a member of the Administration Council in your area! REMEMBER: September 18 and 19, 2010 are our days!
