Update: As of 2024/04/26, the home server for PCMA has changed, following Yesmap's disablement of Matrix. The picture instructions below will be updated soon.

PCMA is a Pro-c MAP Activist organization that is involved in several activism activities like:

  1. Spreading our message and bursting the myths surrounding adult-minor sex on social media platforms like Quora, Twitter, Instagram etc.
  2. Creating posters, memes and videos conveying our message.
  3. Finding out and archiving of studies, useful resources and news articles relevant to our cause.
  4. Contributing and writing content on Newgon.
  5. Discussing new ideas and strategies to further our agenda and any general talks about MAP issues.
  6. Educating and training new activists about doing activism effectively and helping them out with any new initiatives they are willing to take.

If you are interested in joining PCMA, here are the steps:

Following Yesmap's disablement of Matrix, groups such as the one on have appeared, aiming to replicate the organized activism seen in the Yesmap-supported predecessor. Both this, and an unofficial PCMA group at are independent of the Yesmap server, and Newgon, which continue their work away from Matrix - the former hosting a Fediverse server and scaled-down Rocketchat server.

The newer groups bearing the name "PCMA" may violate moderation standards recently set down by Newgon, since they are not beholden to those standards.
