I like victor victims suggestion the best, most of the others are not general enough and may not apply to everybody (although many are good in their own right).

Male abuse victims come from all sorts of emotional places and experiences- you need something general as to not exclude anybody.

Also put it into context-they are going to attend a conference about this, so what are they doing? what do they believe in doing? why are they there? I think the one that most will relate to is as posted previously:

END THE SILENCE!

This is also especially pertinent as you say this is the first conference of this type in that area.

And of course sentrys contribution

"You are not Alone"

That is a really powerful one! but for a poster? not so sure if it speaks in the right way on a poster, can't put my finger on it, maybe it comes down to context, but definitely on a pamphlet or something!

I really like any slogans that have to do with "ENDING THE SILENCE." This is effective in so many ways. After all, it is the foundation upon which recovery is based. First we end the inner silence that tried to hide away what happened to us from ourselves. Secondly, we end the outer silence by telling the world (one person can be the world to some) what happened making it even more real and therefore capable of being grappled. Finally, and this is important, it challenges non-survivors and society as a whole to stop pretending away the reality of sexual abuse. 20 percent of Americans are sexually abused before the age of sixteen (1/4 girls, 1/6 guys) and pretty much all of them have to deal with the severe psychological/behavioral consequences in some way, shape, or form. 20 PERCENT. The CDC should be going nuts and the President should be on the television asking Congress to fight this thing but no...the United States does not have a child abuse problem. And children across the world in other countries or from a hundred years ago had no problem with it at all because they were somehow "tougher" than we are today. Yeah. Frickin'. Right.

Boys from dysfunctional homes are more likely to be sexually abused than girls from dysfunctional homes.
