Sexual Assault Awareness Month


April marks Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the U.S. During SAAM, activists raise awareness about sexual violence and educate communities and individuals on how to prevent it.

The 2017 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center focuses on engaging new voices in the conversations and movement against sexual assault.

Throughout the month of April, the WCA will be sharing additional information about sexual assault, healthy sexuality, and sexual assault prevention for different age groups, populations, and communities.

The WCA will also be participating in Denim Day this year– a global campaign to bring awareness to sexual assault victims and the dangers of victim blaming. Find out how you can get involved in Denim Day here.
