Jim and Jennifer welcome Christopher Anderson to Freedom for All.

Christopher Anderson is a man of change who is helping to free a lot of males who have experienced sexual abuse.

As the Executive Director of MaleSurvivor, Chris is a passionate advocate for the rights of survivors of sexual abuse. He joined the organization in 2007 after coming to understand the extent to which the sexual abuse and trauma he suffered as a child profoundly affected his life. He now speaks publicly about his own experiences as a survivor of sexual abuse, how MaleSurvivor helped him progress in his own healing, and about how vital it is that we offer our support survivors.

In 2007, he wrote and co-presented, "Ten Things Every Therapist Should Know About Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse" at MaleSurvivor's International Conference with Ken Followell. Chris was one of the 200+ survivors who took part in the historic Oprah Winfrey Show special episodes highlighting the truth of Male Sexual Abuse and its effect on the victims and society at large that aired in November 2010. Chris is also a founding member of the Males For Trauma Recovery workgroup (M4TR) organized by Subtance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA).

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.
