Description: 

SNAP welcomes survivors, supporters and friends to the 2015 Annual SNAP Conference June 24th-26th at the Holiday Inn Chicago-Mart Plaza River North, Chicago, Illinois. SNAP was founded in 1988 as a self-help support group for those who were sexually violated. Frustrated with the inadequate response from church officials we began seeking out each other. Still hurting, we determined to research and teach ourselves how to heal from the trauma. Very early in the process we figured out that church officials were interested in protecting predators and their reputation, not helping victims and family members. As the SNAP members embarked on individual journeys towards wholeness we discovered that working to prevent future violence is an integral element for healing.
