Kori and Ezra talk life as a survivor at the Male Survivors National Conference

We heard from many inspiring voices at our Male Survivors National Conference back at the start of November. One of the most powerful talks was this conversational presentation from Kori and Ezra; both male survivors of childhood sexual violence, and powerful advocates for dedicated support of male survivors, ending sexual violence, and systemic change.

Kori runs an instagram where he advocates for survivors, and Ezra works for moMENtum, an organisation that facilitates peer support networks and groups for male survivors.
