We are working to start a Survivor Coalition Peer Support Group. The group is open to anyone who is a survivor of sexual violence, and is not exclusive to cis-women. Anyone within the community (outside of Columbia included) is welcome to join! If you are interested in being a member or co-facilitator please feel free fill out the form below. All membership and information within the group is confidential.
