April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)

April marks the 21st year of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The goals of SAAM are to shine a light on the issue by providing education, supporting those who experience sexual violence, and focusing on prevention. Express your support for those who have experienced sexual violence—wear teal thoughout the month  or look for virtual and in-person events that focus on SAAM’s goals.

Denim Day is April 27

On April 27th, wear denim to show solidarity and support for those who have experienced sexual violence. Denim Day was created as a response to a person who experienced sexual violence in Italy, who was blamed for her assault because she was forced to take her jeans off herself. The court deemed this to be consent. Protests soon followed, with supporters wearing denim. In the years following this ruling, Denim Day was formed—an international movement to recognize and support those who experience sexual violence by wearing denim. You can wear denim and post your photos to your social media accounts with the hashtags #DenimDay and #SAAM. Don't forget to follow our Health Promotion team on Instagram @hello_hpo for more connections and info.
