Keynote Speaker: Christopher Anderson, Executive Director of MaleSurvivor: Christopher M. Anderson is the Executive Director of MaleSurvivor, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping male survivors of sexual abuse and their loved ones by creating communities of Hope, Healing, and Support. Through it’s website, social media platforms, professional training programs, and Weekends of Recovery MaleSurvivor helps hundreds of thousands of people every year who have been impacted in some way by sexual victimization.

Chris joined MaleSurvivor in 2007 after coming to understand the extent to which the sexual abuse he suffered as a child profoundly altered his life. A survivor of multiple forms of childhood trauma with an ACES (Adverse Childhood Experience Study) score of 6, Chris has overcome battles with severe depression, anxiety disorder, and suicidal impulses to become a passionate advocate for survivors of sexual abuse and other forms of childhood trauma. A peer advocate, he speaks publicly about his own story, the unique challenges male survivors face, and on the need for greater partnership between professionals and survivors across disciplines.

Chris speaks regularly at conferences all over the country and regularly conducts trainings and informational presentations for groups including: the National District Attorneys Association, the United Nations (Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict), Department of Defense (SAPRO), Nova Southeastern University, US Congress Victims’ Rights Caucus, American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children, Penn State University, and thousands of students, therapists, social workers, substance abuse counselors, and other mental health professionals in the US and Canada. Chris is also a certified trainer with the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA), and a founding member of the Males For Trauma Recovery workgroup (M4TR) organized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA). He is also a member of the Advisory Board to the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence (NPEIV).

A member of Local One, IATSE, Chris worked as a stagehand on and off Broadway until 2011. He currently lives in New York City with his wife, Jane. Chris graduated in 1996 from St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland with a BA in Liberal Arts.

Mitch Poe Award Winners - Each year, TCSAAC honors a professional who distinguishes himself/herself as a passionate defender of victims of sexual abuse. Previous recipients include:
   2015: Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) - These dedicated nurses at John Peter Smith Hospital have advanced education and instruction in medical forensic examination and in psychological and emotional trauma. SANE nurses may also provide expert testimony in a court of law. These SANE nurses are dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate care in a safe and private environment.
   2013: Alana Minton - Chief Prosecutor of the Crimes Against Children Unit in the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office. She has worked for the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office since 1997, holding her current position since 2007. She has dedicated her career to protecting children and all those effected by sexual abuse. She works tirelessly in training and supporting an excellent staff who share her passion for helping victims and ensuring that victims have rights. This person has provided valuable information during past workshops and continually goes over and above to help the community.
   2012: Sheila B. Johnson - She is an outstanding member of the community whose name is synonymous with victims’ rights and protecting children. If there is something that has happened in the field of protecting children or advocating for rights of victims, this person has likely been instrumental in it. She is committed to Justice for Children and Changing the Lives of Children. She is always willing to be hands-on and do whatever is needed to help the community. She invests much of her time and expertise to help the community and advocate for the care of children and families in Tarrant County. She has worked a lifetime creating organizations, such as the Alliance for Children. She is the past Chair of the Tarrant County CPS Board. She is the secretary of the Amon G. Carter Foundation Board of Directors. She and her foundation have continually provided funding to multiple agencies to help with research and protecting children and families.
   2011: David Montague - Former prosecutor for the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office.
   2010: Rona Stratton-Smith and Lisa Gabbert - Stemming from the murder of Rona’s sister and Lisa’s rape, the two have managed to turn tragedy into a movement for change and triumph – not only in their own case but in the state and nation. Their journey, self admittedly, only has an end when there are no more sexually violent predators. This is a journey they willingly make through agencies, courts, and legislative sessions. They made the declared shift from victim to more than merely survivors – to forces to be reckoned with in Texas.
   2009: Bubba Schafer - In 2002, he was credited for apprehending a serial rapist, Manuel Salamanca, Jr. The police in Arlington, Cleburne, Burleson, and Benbrook had been looking for the rapist for six years after being linked to nine rapes. Salamanca Jr. was then convicted and sentenced to two life sentences. Bubba has since dedicated his life to helping victims of abuse.
   2008: Mitch Poe - Tarrant County District Attorney for whom this award was named after. Mr. Poe was instrumental in advocating for victims' rights.
