April is almost here!
During the fourth month of every year hundreds of thousands of folks come together to spread awareness and to stand up and speak out against sexual assault in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). In powerful displays of solidarity, men and women are educating and engaging others to help end sexual violence.
One of the perks of our travels is the chance to see the many ways students and community members honor this special time of year. Feeling inspired but nothing is planned as of yet? Don't panic, if your Sexual Assault Awareness event is not underway, we've got your back. There are tons of ideas out there just waiting for you to snatch them up and several are low budget or free. So check them out, get inspired and get to planning! Unite for Change http://uniteforchange.com/standup.php is a good place to start and there are also fantastic event ideas on the official SAAM site http://www.nsvrc.org/saam/resources/events.
If we can be of service please let us know and don't forget to share the photos from your successful, uniquely you event so we can brag all about you and share your ideas and accomplishments with other campuses and communities.
