Poll for Supportive Services for Survivors in Chicago Kink Community

CHICAGO – Chicago DVSN is asking the community to take just two minutes of your time to answer a poll about the kinds of services and programs you would most like to see in your community.

How about Free and Sliding Scale Therapy Groups led by Kink Friendly, Trauma-Informed Psychologists? Support Groups? Trauma-Informed Scene Advocates? Educational Workshops for Trauma Survivors on topics like “Re-Entering The Scene: A Guide For Survivors” or “The Mindful Subspace”?

If you are a local trauma victim or survivor of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, sex-trafficking, or childhood sexual abuse, your contribution will help Chicago Domestic Violence Support Network better assess the immediate supportive needs of the Chicago Kink/Leather/LGTBQ/Poly community so we can determine how to best distribute our efforts and resources for these programs.

Please help us spread the word about this poll by posting it in status updates or sending the link in a PM to friends on Fetlife who you feel may benefit from it. Remember, the more responses we get, the better understanding we will have of the our community’s needs.

Please note that this is an anonymous poll and does not require any personally identifying information from its contributors.

If you have any questions about this poll, or would like to suggest a supportive service not listed, please do not hesitate to contact us at:
