Holy Family University Supports SAAM
Each April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) is supported across the country in an effort to call attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts every person in this community. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how to prevent it. Supported annually by the Title IX Office, and in collaboration with University partners and campus community members, SAAM is a key effort in raising awareness, in bringing knowledge to our faculty, staff, and students, and in challenging our campus to use its voice in the conversation to end sexual violence. While April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, our community supports ways in which we can make sure each day of the year is an opportunity to create change for the future.
2020 SAAM Theme: 'I Ask'
Consent is a clear, concrete example of what it takes to end sexual harassment, abuse, and assault, and this year’s campaign shares the message that asking for consent is a normal and necessary part of any relationship and intimate connection. The goal of the campaign is to empower all of us to put consent into practice. Our 'I Ask' resources help share important messages about consent and healthy relationships.
