The goal of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) is to raise public awareness about sexual violence, to educate communities on how to prevent it, and to give individuals the chance to speak out about ending sexual violence.
Together, we can build an environment and community that makes sexual assault 100% preventable.
This work starts with our families and friends. Everyone has opportunities to have conversations about valuing consent, healthy boundaries, and positive relationships. Over time, these personal conversations lead to larger shifts in attitudes and how our culture perceives sexual violence.
The tide can turn—and it starts with you.
START CONVERSATIONS online and in person
Point out moments when you notice boundary violations, gender stereotypes, or unhealthy relationship ideals in movies, TV, or music.
BELIEVE & LISTEN to survivors
Amplify the voices of survivors of sexual assault who come forward. Read and share their stories.
SHARE your story
Speak out about the impact of sexual assault on your life through KCSARC's Amplified Stories project.
MAKE A GIFT to support programs that work to end sexual assault
Contribute towards implementing educational programs around King County in schools, teams, and youth groups. By having necessary conversations about consent and relationships, we can help youth understand their power in changing our culture.
