April is Sexual Assult Awareness Month
This year, the Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign is Engaging New Voices. The focus will be on involving coaches, faith leaders, parents, Greek Life, and bystanders with preventing sexual assault.
Week of Awareness was created by the local Victims Rights Coalition. Victim’s Rights Awareness Week is from April 2 – 8, 2017. This year the theme will be Strength, Resilience and Justice.
ACF will be in the community hosting events as part of Victim’s Rights Awareness Week. We will be stationed throughout many places in the community promoting organizations and educating our audience about Victims Rights through branded literature. Literature will also include the organizations and agencies in the area that help protect Victim’s Rights.
Visit ACF’s booth at these places throughout the community throughout the week:
- Massillon Library from 12 pm – 4 pm
- Rodman Library from 12 pm – 4 pm
