Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is sexual assault awareness month.

What is sexual violence? Sexual violence means that someone forces or manipulates someone else into unwanted sexual activity without their consent. Reasons someone might not consent include fear, age, illness, disability, and/or influence of alcohol or other drugs. Anyone can experience sexual violence including: children, teens, adults, and elders. Those who sexually abuse can be acquaintances, family members, trusted individuals or strangers.

SAFE is proud to be sponsoring events all month long to raise awareness about this important issue. Please check back to learn more about how you can stand up & speak out against sexual violence in this community.
