TA Question of the Month

By Susan Sullivan, Prevention Campaign Specialist for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign for 2019 is laser-focused on one concept: consent. The goal of SAAM is more than awareness – the ultimate goal is prevention. Since consent is a clear, concrete example of what it takes to end sexual violence, it only made sense that this year’s theme center on empowering all of us – including those in traditionally marginalized groups – to put consent into practice. Engaging in conversations with our partners, children, and friends about consent is #1Thing that we can all do to promote safe and healthy relationships.
