Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Please take time this month to learn about sexual assault prevention and supporting victims of sexual assault by participating in the activities available at LSCPA and online.

The theme for SAAM 2023 is Drawing Connections: Prevention Demands Equity.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) calls attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts every person in the community. SAAM aims to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities about how to prevent it.
