Sexual Assault Awareness Throughout King County

This April, we called on you to raise your voices during Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).

During SAAM, we come together to raise public awareness about sexual violence, educate communities on how to prevent it, and give individuals the chance to speak out.

A message to our community

It has been several weeks since the news of the sexual abuse suit against Seattle Mayor Ed Murray became public. During this time, a heated political climate has fueled speculation about the background of the individual filing the charges, the law firm representing him, and the mayor.   

Amplified Stories: I Am Not the Only One

AMPLIFIED STORIES is a platform created by KCSARC in order to amplify the voices of survivors of sexual violence. Shared experiences hold the power to validate, heal, and change. The post below was submitted by a survivor who gave KCSARC permission to share their story.

'Being able to have a conversation about sexual assault is a big step forward.'

We asked Anna Moore, a longtime KCSARC supporter and community advocate, about the changes in conversation surrounding sexual assault, what people can do help prevent violence, and why she is such a strong supporter of KCSARC’s mission.  


What do you think has changed for the better in the public's perception about sexual assault?

I think that general awareness has increased. There is more outreach being done in the community, there is more media/social media attention about the issue of sexual violence.

Changing the Conversation

As Sexual Assault Awareness Month comes to an end, we want to challenge you to continue changing the conversation with family, with friends, and with colleagues in effort to stop sexual assault.

To help with this challenge, every Monday, we’ll post a new topic with questions on our Instagram feed. We hope you will continue asking – and answering – these thought-provoking questions.
