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.

'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.

'My job is full of hope': A Conversation with KCSARC's Prevention Services Specialist

We asked Rachel Taylor, Prevention Services Specialist at KCSARC, questions about the the changes in sexual assault prevention, what she enjoys about her work, and where she has seen positive progress in the public's perception of sexual violence.

Did you know April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)?

Prevention is SAAM’s 2017 theme and throughout the month, we’ll raise public awareness with tips, stories, and facts about sexual assault prevention across our social media platforms. Preventing sexual violence starts with having early conversations about consent, healthy relationships, boundaries, bullying, and negative gender stereotypes with the youth—and friends, family, and co-workers—in our lives.
