Every April the Rape Recovery Center participates in Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), a nationwide effort to raise our collective consciousness around issues of sexual violence. This year, we are excited to offer a wide range of events to engage our community in exciting ways. With offerings ranging from Zumba and art workshops to a bar hop, we hope you will find something on our SAAM calendar that fits for you. It all kicks off with a Facebook Live event on April 2nd, where we will give you a tour of the center, introduce you to some of our awesome staff, and give you a preview of the month ahead. See our full list of SAAM events, and stay connected to us on social media for updates all month long.
You will also find many exciting SAAM events from our partner agencies. The Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault is hosting their annual Utah Sexual Violence Conference and SAAM awards. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center's website has excellent resources and information as part of their 2018 SAAM campaign, including guides on planning your own SAAM event!
However you decide to participate in SAAM, we hope you will find ways to celebrate hope and healing, and learn about how we can work together to end sexual violence in our communities.
