- Submissives' Advocacy Council Of Central Texas: A new group made up of submissives is being formed that will act as an advocacy council for all area submissives. Group members will be available to counsel submissives when there is a concern for the welfare and safety, emotional as well as physical, of the submissive. Council members may also act as advocates for a submissive if there is ever an issue with a dominant or other persons acting in a way that frightens or worries the submissive. It will be the goal of this advocacy council to provide area submissives an avenue to find advice and support from people they can confide in and trust. Council members may have affiliations with and memberships in other area groups, but the council will have affiliations with no other groups. The council will not be sponsored by any other group and it will not answer to any other group. At this time the council is accepting applications from area submissives interested in being a part of the council. Members should be active in at least one area group, be willing to devote the time necessary if called on to help someone, and be willing to have their names and emails listed on the Council web page. This council is in no way going to try and mentor any submissives, and it is not the Council's intention to replace any mentoring relationship. A council member who feels that a sub is really in need of mentoring rather than an advocate will put that submissive in contact with the mentoring groups in the area.
