This year has been an important one for raising awareness about sexual assault. From the #MeToo movement to the #TimesUp campaign, sexual assault awareness has been a topic of conversation around kitchen tables, work places, classrooms and online for the past few months. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) so we want to keep these conversations surrounding sexual assault going into April and for months to come.
Recognize: learn to spot the signs.
Learning to recognize the signs is the first step in ending sexual violence. You can visit https://www.nsvrc.org/saam to learn more about sexual violence and different awareness month activities. You can also invite a CPAF representative to speak about building healthy communities and ending violence at your local events.
