About SAAM

Sexual Assault Awareness Month takes place every April to highlight the prevalence of sexual violence, the importance of prevention, and the resiliency of survivors. "Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. And every 9 minutes, that victim is a child. Meanwhile, only 5 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison." These statistics from RAINN are gut-wrenching, but points to the reality that sexual violence is part of many people's lived experiences and not enough is being done to prevent it.

 

2021 marks the 20 year anniversary of recognizing Sexual Assault Awareness month, and you can find more history about the month at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. The theme of this year's awareness month is "We Can Build Safe Online Spaces."
