Visionary Voice Award Reception: Clarice Charlie-Hubbard (April 24)
NSVRC offers the Visionary Voice Awards, in conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month each April, to recognize the creativity and hard work of individuals around the country who have demonstrated outstanding work to end sexual violence. Each year, state, territory, and tribal coalitions select an outstanding individual to nominate for the awards. Nominees may be partners from a local community or other outstanding individuals that have worked to end sexual violence.
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s annual Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign goal is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how to prevent it. The campaign theme for 2019, I Ask, champions the message that asking for consent is a healthy, normal, and necessary part of everyday interactions.
