April may be Sexual Assault Awareness Month, but for too many,
it’s something we think about on a regular basis.
We are here and we will not stand in silent, still waters any longer.
It's time to be heard. It's time to bring awareness and resources
to our communities and focus on the healing process!

Sexual Assault Awareness Month is an annual designation observed in April.
The mission of this month is to raise awareness about sexual violence around the world, and to educate
communities on how to prevent it.
The term “sexual assault” is a large umbrella and includes all of the following:
If you, or anyone you know is experiencing any of these, or experiences them in the future, call the police or click here for the National Sexual Assault Telephone Hotline. Sexual assault is a crime and is not something that should ever be taken lightly.
Do not be afraid to speak out if this happens to you.
If you need a hand to hold, an ear to listen - contact us - there is power in numbers
and we stand with our brothers and sisters!
In April, and every month to follow, people across the country are encouraged to embrace their voices to show support for survivors, and speak out if they have experienced sexual assault themselves. One month isn’t enough time to solve this serious issue, but it’s a fantastic place to start. This month, do your part to end the widespread problem that is sexual assault.
*Here’s an additional list of statistics about sexual assault in the U.S.
Use your voice - MAKE WAVES with us! Help spread the word to end sexual assault in the U.S., and all over the world. Sexual assault is a horrific problem, but the good news is that prevention is possible, and it’s happening more and more. By ending the stigma and continuing support and awareness programs, we are slowly but surely able to lower the amount of sexual assaults that occur every year.
Sexual Assault Awareness month began in April 2001, and was founded by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. THE NSVRC is the leading nonprofit in providing information and tools to help individuals, service providers, and communities prevent sexual violence.
Again – if you, or anyone you know is experiencing any of these, or experiences them in the future, call the police or click here for the National Sexual Assault Telephone Hotline. Sexual assault is a crime and is not something that should ever be taken lightly. Do not be afraid to speak out if this happens to you.
