For myself as a survivor from Canada, some of the issues that need a few good advocates...
One of my abusers was a doctor and as such I have been granted a coulselling fund, not much by any means, there are so many rules to access those funds it is ridiculous, they cannot pay travel, or any other associated costs of therapy, due to current legislation, so more advocacy in that area would be very helpful, petitioning the government on behalf of survivors, also petitioning the governing bodies of the med establishment to increase the funding for victims of abuse by doctors and medical professionlas. Also issues of fair and proper compensation for victims of these crimes, sentencing issues for sure are nwhere near what most of society feels is a proper sentence, yet these judges keep slapping these sicko's on their collective wrists, sending the message that it's ok to abuse children, and other vulnerables in society. Definately advocacy to try and stop before it happens by having more youth programs, greater public awareness of issues facing potential victims etc..Advocating for vistims rights, including us in the whole process, victimc helping victims makes sense as well, I know for myself, if a therapist or social worker can identify with what I have been thru by sharing their own experiences, the results can be monumental. Dont know if any of this makes sense, but there it is..lol..
I have a question, how would somebody that is interested in doing some type of advocacy work?
