April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

SAAM is a month focused on raising awareness and informing the public about what individuals can do to change the culture and to join the movement to end sexual violence in this nation and around the world. Throughout April, advocates and volunteers will canvass neighborhoods, produce public service announcements, reach out to local media, and ask public officials to end violence at college campuses, on the streets and in homes.

RTS participates in both national and state wide coalitions to end sexual violence, including the “No More” campaign featured during Super Bowl 49.
