Fall is upon us, my favorite season of the year. October has always been my favorite month, for all of the color and slipstream feel to it, the in-between time where we can begin to take into account all that…
Beautiful people, April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Each year, The National Sexual Violence Resource Center identifies a theme for this year’s campaign. The 2017 theme is Engaging New Voices.
The NSVRC website states:
“During Sexual Assault Awareness Month survivors and advocates engage the greater community in prevention efforts. We know that one month isn’t enough to solve the serious and widespread issue of sexual violence. But the attention April generates is an opportunity to energize and expand prevention efforts. There’s no better way to expand the scope of SAAM than by reaching out to a broader audience.
That’s why Engaging New Voices is the theme of the 2017 SAAM campaign. Because we can’t reach everyone. But we can identify key leaders who will — leaders whose influence is necessary in achieving cultural change not just in April, but all year long.”
If you are in need of support, please refer to the listing of International Resources for Survivors of both Sexual and Domestic Violence here on my website. This is an extensive listing of resources that provide emotional, legal and medical assistance and support. Thank you.
And all peace to each one of you, especially those of you in need of safety and healing. Dora
