Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2024: Building Connected Communities
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center announced the theme for the National Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign, Building Connected Communities, which focuses on addressing social and structural factors that impact the way people live, learn, work and play in order to prevent and end sexual violence.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) aims to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities about how to prevent it. Every year, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) publishes online campaign materials, resources and learning tools to bring the movement to end sexual violence together around SAAM.
Through Building Connected Communities, NSVRC calls on movement leaders to take a Health Equity approach to ending violence, by addressing the social and structural determinants of health, like education, income, employment, community safety and social support in order to promote health and wellbeing.
