What is SAAM?
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
"The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the United States. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. Each day, people witness a continuum of behaviors that range from being respectful and safe, to sexually abusive and violent.
The 2012 national Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign wants to start a dialogue, and the topic of the conversation is healthy sexuality. The 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign encourages communities and individuals to join the conversation on how we connect and respect one another in order to prevent sexual violence.common, everyday behaviors and offers individuals viable, responsible ways to intervene. This primary prevention approach helps to create environments where people are safe in their relationships, families, neighborhoods, schools, work places and communities. This year’s SAAM brings together resources and information, thus offering everyone the opportunity to address behaviors before sexual violence occurs."
