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.

Be sure to follow us on your favorite social media platform throughout the month! Some items shared will include:
