Each year during the month of April, across the country, motivated individuals with a passion for sexual violence prevention take part in Sexual Assault Awareness Month, or SAAM. Through planned community events, and activities SAAM highlights sexual violence as the public health, human rights and social justice issue that it is. In addition to educating communities to the widespread issues of sexual violence it also generates opportunities to expand prevention efforts throughout the year.
