Our national advisory consultants 

make our publications better for survivors.


We extend a special thank you to the survivors and other experts who have participated in our national advisory council over the years since first publication in 2000. They have shared their expertise and feedback on specific booklets and sections to ensure our publications are accurate, trauma-informed, representative of diverse persons, and culturally sensitive. They are a big part of the reason our publications stand out.  We are grateful for their contributions to help us to reach survivors. Nothing about us without us. Thank you!

of them from their work and expertise?

There are helpers all around  us doing
