April has been designated as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal of SAAM is to raise awareness of sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. Various organizations and departments are co-sponsoring events all throughout April to encourage members of the UCSD community to take a stand against sexual violence.
Check out a listing of the differen SAAM events here.
Also, please stop by the LGBT Resource Center! We have a board with info on SAAM and a Survivor Shout Out station. Survivor shout outs are a way we as a community can show our support to survivors of sexual assault. Shout outs will be written on a starfish shape and included in the Sexual Assault Awareness Month display during Weeks 4 and 5. Give a shout out to a survivor you know through the online form or by stopping by the RC!
