Bill Murray is the Founder of NAASCA (National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse). NOTE from Bill -- I'm hoping that after my more than 25 years of sobriety and recovery from all the issues initiated by my severe abuse as a child our new www.NAASCA.org non profit can resonate with hope for those who have found it difficult to share their abuse stories.  I especially encourage sharing in appropriate groups.  This is the beginning of recovery.  Secondly I'm hoping our new effort can help bring attention to a growing problem the scope of which few understand.  Its simply unacceptable that hundreds of thousands of young Americans fall victim to pedophiles, molesters, kidnappers, child ographers and traffickers each year. 

"I want to take the worst thing that happened to me and turn it into the best thing I have to offer to the community," he said.

Murray, who grew up in New York, was sexually abused when he was 11 years old during summer camp; the abuse continued for three summers.

 

The organization will be aimed at helping child abuse victims cope with their trauma by providing resources and a safe space to talk about their experiences, said Murray, who was a victim of child abuse.

"I've gone through the recovery, and I'm healthy enough to be a spokesperson," the recovering drug and alcohol addict said. "I want to devote my life now to help other people who had the same experiences and have not talked about it, especially men."

Murray said he plans to use the Community Matters podcast to encourage victims, who can remain anonymous, to share their stories. He'll also focus on the issues of sex crimes, sex trafficking and child ography.
