that same year. It was at the December Community Forum, under the
guidance of Executive Business Coach Heather Bradley, of the Flourishing
Company, that those in attendance determined a formal organization should
be developed totally dedicated to ending all forms of sexual abuse/violence
in NWO. The Mission and Purpose of SA PATH was established.
Membership in SA PATH is free and open to any organization or individual
interested in working toward the eradication of all forms of sexual violence,
assuring ongoing assistance is available for child and adult survivors and
co-survivors, and offering of educational and supportive opportunities are
available to those who work in the field is provided.
There are a variety of Creativity Circles that address the focus of the
Coalition where ongoing input is needed. They include Legal, Media,
Technology, Resource Guide, First Responder Protocol, Treatment &
Ongoing Healing, Prevention & Awareness, and Administration. The efforts
of the Creativity Circles is driven by the definition of Creativity:
To Cause Into Being That (which is) Not Made By Ordinary Processes.
Something Unique That Would Not Normally Evolve.
