Background on SAAM
The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the United States. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.
By working together and pooling our resources during the month of April, we can highlight sexual violence as a major public health, human rights and social justice issue and reinforce the need for prevention efforts.
Learn about the History of SAAM
See NSVRC's SAAM Blog, which provides details of the different resources for this year’s campaign and highlights eight ways individuals can get involved throughout April.
