April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and several programs and events are happening around campus to educate our community on sexual, dating, and interpersonal violence. We encourage you to check out the events on the Red Flag Campaign website.

Several of the events offer extra credit and you may pick up an extra credit slip at the end of the program from the presenters. Events that are offering extra credit will have it noted in the description of the event on the website.

About Sexual Assault Awareness Month

The following introduction to Sexual Assault Awareness Month is reposted from the National Sexual Assault Resource Center (NSVRC) website...

In the United States April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). During April people raise awareness about sexual violence and how to prevent it. Since 2001, the NSVRC has provided resources to help individuals and organizations plan SAAM activities in their communities and play a role in prevention throughout the year.
Each year, the NSVRC chooses a campaign theme and supports SAAM organizers and participants with resources, tools and customized help. SAAM materials can be used to educate, plan activities and support local campaigns. You can contact organizations in your state or community to learn more about activities planned for SAAM.
