Observe Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month

Observe Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month

Let’s learn more about Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month.

This year, the theme for Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month is “Embrace Your Voice.”  This theme asks us to consider how our words shape the world around us and asks how individuals and communities can use their voices to make an impact and become agents for change.

Sexual assault is a serious issue than can impact each and every one of us, and that’s why we should all make an effort to get involved this month.  Here are some of the things that we can do to join the fight against sexual violence.

  • Raise Our Voices

One way we can really embrace the theme of this year’s Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month is by making sure that out government hears our voices.  This is why we should actively contact our representatives and ask about legislation that improves the criminal justice system, supports survivors, and brings sexual predators to justice.

  • Get Social

Another way we can spread a message of sexual violence prevention is by posting on social media sites.  Let’s encourage our friends and followers to join the fight against sexual violence and make sure that we tag our posts with #SAAM to get our voices trending.

  • Reach Out to a Survivor

Many of us personally know survivors of sexual violence, and this month is a great time for us to reach out and let them know that they have our support.  To be there and be supportive of a survivor, try out some of these helpful tips.

If you or a loved one is a victim of sexual violence and are seeking confidential help and support, then please don’t hesitate to contact the 24/7 National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE and online.rainn.org.
