Tomorrow is Sexual Assault Awareness Month Day of Action

Sexual Assault Awareness Month Day of Action

Get involved on the Day of Action during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). While we can use the entire month to help raise awareness about the very serious issue of sexual assault and what we can do to prevent it, tomorrow is special. It’s SAAM’s Day of Action.

This nationally recognized day is designed to give communities the opportunity to band together for meaningful events. You can find a gathering in your community to connect with others who are spreading awareness and prevention resources.

We can also get involved online. Head to the SAAM blog to learn more about their work and get access to sexual assault prevention tools. Why not use our social media to spread awareness by posting something thought-provoking about sexual assault tomorrow?

Nearly 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men are victims of rape. But all of us are impacted by sexual violence. That’s because sexual violence affects communities and society — in addition to survivors and their loved ones. Because of this, it’s on all of us to help prevent it.

Sexual violence includes rape, incest, child sexual assault, ritual abuse, non-stranger rape, statutory rape, marital or partner rape, sexual exploitation, sexual contact, sexual harassment, exposure, and voyeurism. It is a crime typically motivated by the desire to control, humiliate, and/or harm — not by sexual desire. Sexual violence violates a person’s trust and feelings of safety. It happens to people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, professions, incomes, and ethnicities.

However we choose to get involved, we’ll be helping to put a stop to sexual assault, and helping people learn the power of “no.”

The Maria Sanchez Show will be joining you in getting involved in this very important day. We’ll also be bringing awareness to important issues like this on our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown. Tune in Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
