Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)

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.

'We Can Build Safe Online Spaces'

Sexual harassment, assault, and abuse can happen anywhere, including in online spaces. As we connect online, we can learn how to practice digital consent, intervene when we see harmful content or behaviors, and ensure that online spaces — whether they be workspaces, classrooms, social media platforms, or otherwise — are respectful and safe.
