In the United States, April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. Our overarching theme for this month is “Creating Safe Spaces for All Communities”. Throughout April we will be looking at sexual assault as it occurs in different spaces and communities and focusing on ways to elevate and evolve prevention and intervention efforts to address this global crisis. Please join us in the virtual activities and experiences this month to promote sexual assault awareness and prevention and show support for all victim/survivors.
