        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

        Visit NSVRC's Spanish-language SAAM website, where you will find information and resources. // Visite nuestro página web en español de SAAM, donde puedes acceder a recursos e información.

        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.

        Other things you can do are participate in the 30 Days of SAAM Instagram Contest, and hang a poster.
