Sexual violence crosses all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. April is National Sexual Assault Awareness month, created to increase awareness of the widespread prevalence of sexual assault nationwide. This April, the 2015 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign is focused on healthy sexuality and young people.
Itʻs time to start the conversation...
What are we really talking about?
What is healthy sexuality and consent? What is campus sexual violence?
How can YOU get involved?
