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.
