MaleSurvivor, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to overcoming sexual victimization of boys and men will bring its national Dare to Dream program to Purchase, New York. The program, developed in response to “The Oprah Winfrey Show” highlighting male sexual abuse and featuring internationally recognized MaleSurvivor spokesperson, Dr. Howard Fradkin, will focus on bringing a message of hope and healing while offering support for abuse survivors in its fifth installment of the local programs.

Dare to Dream will provide male survivors with a safe and comfortable environment to join others in lifting the veil of secrecy and shame from their experience. The program will feature clips from Emmy-nominated “The Oprah Winfrey Show” segments, a facilitated panel discussion, and an opportunity to learn about local resources and support groups. Former President of MaleSurvivor Curtis St. John, Murray Schane, MD and former President of MaleSurvivor, and Chris Anderson, MaleSurvivor Board Member, will facilitate the New York program.
