Get Involved

SAAM 2019

Each April, KCSARC joins the nationwide call to end sexual violence in all forms. Sexual violence affects every person in our community. So it takes all of us, working together, to stand up and say "no more." That's the reason "Count Me In" is this year's campaign theme. 

ARE YOU IN?

We're glad you're here! This is a good place to get information about things we can all do in our own region to end sexual violence. It's vital that we bring sexual assault into the open and talk about it. We can't change what we can't talk about, so let's have a conversation -- online and in person. Click below for a message worth sharing: 


 ONLINE: TOOLS TO START A CONVERSATION 

We'll post educational messages and actions you can take throughout the month April on our social feeds. Start by following us on your favorite social channels: FacebookTwitter, or Instagram. Engage with us and start a conversation with your friends and networks by commenting on and sharing any of the posts you like.

 IN YOUR CITY: THANK YOUR LEADERS 

Thanks to the leadership of the Sound Cities Association and its member mayors of Renton, Pacific, Kent, and Kenmore, local governments throughout King County are saying "Count Me In!" by proclaiming April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Cities will be joined this year by law enforcement and county agencies.

We'll post a list of 2019 participating cities, county agencies, and police departments soon.
