We provide support for those experiencing covert harassment through meetings, email and telephone. We also are very active in eradicating covert harassment and provide plenty of opportunities for people to get involved.
The Bay Area Support Group began when Michelle Hachey and Constance Rose met each other. Living just 15 minutes apart, the two ladies immediately found support and friendship. At their first coffee klatch, Michelle suggested that they
form a support group, and the Bay Area Support Group was birthed. We’ve been meeting since August of 2018, and our membership keeps expanding. As of this writing, we have
60 – 70 members.
After months of driving to the Bay Area to attend our meetings, one of our most loyal members, Justin Whitworth, stepped up to start a Sacramento Support Group. Sacramento meetings are posted on our Meetings page. We hope to see you there. For more information, contact Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Covert harassment is an umbrella term that we use to identify a system, or set of protocols, used by the powerful to oppress the powerless.
This set of protocols has been developed over many decades, the earliest demonstration being the subjugation of citizens in East Germany by the Stasi (or State Security Service), one of the most effective and oppressive intelligence and secret police agencies ever to have existed.
One of the main tasks of the Stasi was spying on the population, mainly through a vast network of citizens turned informants, and fighting any opposition by overt and
covert measures, including hidden psychological destruction of dissidents (they called this protocol Zersetzung, literally meaning decomposition). (source: Wikipedia)
In modern day America and many other countries, those protocols have been greatly expanded upon utilizing present day technological innovations and psychological advancements.
A wide variety of entities now utilize these protocols for a variety of reasons to oppress a growing percentage of the population, all hidden in plain sight. Read more about covert harassment here.
The Bay Area Support Group is dedicated to providing a safe space for victims of covert harassment to meet. We find that meeting with others to share our experiences and getting active to bring awareness and stop the crimes creates a more meaningful life for all of us.
