All Americans can play a role in changing the culture that enables sexual violence

itstimewordcloud-bilingual_3President Obama has proclaimed April 2013 as Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.   As was done last year, Obama has added the term “prevention” into this month-long opportunity to highlight efforts to address and prevent sexual violence.

Together, our Nation is moving forward in the fight against sexual assault. This month, let us keep working to prevent violence in every corner of America…

While sexual violence takes place every month, every day of every month people in communities throughout the world are taking action toward ending sexual violence. Whether people are protesting lyrics that promote rape, identifying opportunities to take bystander actions, or tweeting to promote sexual health and safety, we have a lot of work to do.

What are you doing to prevent sexual violence?
