As we look ahead to the start of a new year, we can set our sights on the 2017 Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign! This coming April’s campaign is shaping up to be one of the biggest in scope, as the outreach materials call on new voices to join the movement. The materials listed below and much more will be available on the SAAM website beginning mid-January.

The Theme: Engaging New Voices

We can all use our voices to change the culture to prevent sexual violence. Prevention requires addressing the root causes and social norms that allow sexual violence to exist. This April we’re calling on groups whose influence can play a critical role in changing those causes and norms.

We’re strongest when we raise our voices together, and that’s why we’re engaging new groups in the movement. These groups can help the next generation foster attitudes that promote healthy relationships, equality, and respect. These new voices will have a ripple effect on those that they teach, guide, and influence.

What is Victims’ Rights Week?

The National Center for Victims of Crime and the Office

National Crime Victim’ Rights Week (NCVRW) which will be observed April 19–25, 2015.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) is an opportunity to highlight challenges faced by crime victims and to emphasize the ongoing struggle to establish victims’ rights. This year’s theme—Engaging Communities. Empowering Victims.—focuses on the role communities play providing victims with the support they need to pursue justice and recovery. It also calls attention to the difficulties experienced by crime victims in underserved communities or in marginalized groups. Engaging communities and empowering victims takes resources, dedication, and persistence to establish a welcoming, compassionate, and supportive environment for all victims to share their stories. Creating a comprehensive public awareness campaign for your NCVRW outreach allows you to engage your members, local organizations, and the wider public in the important work of providing crime victims in our community with both the short- and long-term help they need as they recover on their terms.

Why Denim?

In the 90’s a teenage girl in Italy was raped by her driving instructor. The man was convicted, but his case went to the Supreme Court of Appeals in Rome. The court overturned the conviction, arguing that because the girl wore very tight jeans she must have had to help remove them, thereby giving consent to have sex.

The case made international headlines; the young woman’s jeans became a symbol of awareness that what someone wears is never an excuse for sexual assault.

Special thanks go out to  Jessie K. Lloyd for all her hard work at making this event come to life, scoring all the goodies for the auction & being a voice for victims of violence. We appreciate you and are so thankful for all you do for SHRCC & victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

About the 2013 campaign

The 2013 National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign focuses on healthy sexuality and its connection to child sexual abuse prevention.

This April, join the conversation. Start talking about healthy childhood development to prevent child sexual abuse.

The upcoming SAAM campaign provides tools and information on healthy childhood sexual development that adults can use. By learning about the characteristics of healthy sexuality, adults can better identify risks, support healthy boundaries and challenge negative messages. These tools support parents, community members and organizations as they work to prevent child sexual abuse.

The 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign encourages communities and individuals to join the conversation on how we connect and respect one another in order to prevent sexual violence.

The 2012 SAAM campaign provides tools and resources that focus on promoting positive expressions of sexuality and healthy behaviors. Promoting healthy behaviors encourages sexual interactions and relationships that are consensual, respectful and informed. By starting the conversation, this dialogue can build safe, healthy relationships and communities. Many resources are also available in Spanish.

In our country, a child is abused or neglected every 36 seconds, and, according to the Department of Health and Human Services, only 40 percent of abused children receive the services they need. The Protect Our Kids Act can be the catalyst we need to begin to speak out more effectively for children who cannot speak up on their own. This April, as we mark National Child Abuse Prevention Month, I hope more and more of our colleagues will join me and Senator Collins in this first step to end this national abomination once and for all.
