This April 2024, during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, learn how to take steps to build connected communities and enhance your knowledge of sexual assault, harassment, and abuse. In addition, we invite you to explore how to create safe communities where everyone feels safe and supported. We’re asking you to join us in building connected communities that promote equity and respect, as our connections to one another have an impact more significant than just ourselves.

SAAM 2023 "Ask First: Consent" 

The theme for SAAM 2023 was “Ask First: Consent.” This theme pushes the conversation forward by championing the message that asking for consent is a healthy, normal, and necessary part of everyday interactions.

Asking for consent is a concrete and powerful way to ensure that everyone feels safe and respected.

THANK YOU TO OUR 2023 SPONSORS/PARTNERS!!
