APRIL: SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH

April 1 - April 30

This Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we are Building Connected Communities

NCEDSV is participating in the national SAAM campaign through social media awareness initiatives and by promoting statewide resources for sexual assault.

Join us in promoting public awareness of sexual assault prevention and response through social media. NCEDSV will post SAAM-specific content via our social media channels throughout April that you can then share to your pages to help raise community awareness. Add links to your own websites and resources and share with your audiences.
