        Sexual Assault Awareness Month

         

         

        The National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) has declared the theme for SAAM 2015 to be Preventing Sexual Violence on Campus.

        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.
