Hold on to your hard hats! SAAM 2013 campaign construction is under way
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center just released updates about Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2013 in this recent blog post. The theme will be: It’s time… to talk about it! Talk early, talk often.
Regarding the slogan, NSVRC says:
This slogan captures what is truly best practice for sharing information about healthy childhood sexual development. It’s important to start the conversation early and keep it up, whether you are talking to your child, educating in your community or reviewing organizational policies and practices.
And that’s not all! For more information and resources about SAAM 2013, visit the website.
