In a time of social distancing and disconnection, CMSAC is proud to offer an Anonymous Online Chat Group for Survivors of Sexual Violence that helps survivors connect with one another to discuss important topics, questions, and ideas without having to leave their home or log on to a video platform.

How does this work? Every other Monday evening at 5:30 PM, participants will click on the following link to enter the group chat: https://affiliate.rainn.org/helproom/CMSAC …participants can then begin chatting anonymously with trained sexual assault counselors and other survivors in the chat room about any questions, concerns, or ideas they are wanting to discuss. Participants are welcome to enter the group chat up until 7:00 PM and may stay in the chat until 7:30 PM.
