Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2017

April 1 - 30, 2017 in the USA

In April 2017 Sexual Assault Awareness Month is celebrated. Each year during the month of April, state, territory, tribal and community-based organizations, rape crisis centers, government agencies, businesses, campuses and individuals plan events and activities to highlight sexual violence as a public health, human rights and social justice issue and reinforce the need for prevention efforts.

Sexual assault is any involuntary sexual act in which a person is threatened, coerced, or forced to engage against their will, or any sexual touching of a person who has not consented. This includes rape, groping, forced kissing, child sexual abuse, or the torture of the victim in a sexual manner

State, territory, and tribal sexual violence coalitions were polled in 2000 by the Resource Sharing Project and the NSVRC to determine that the color teal was the preferred color for sexual assault awareness and prevention and that April was the preferred month to coordinate national sexual assault awareness activities. The teal ribbon was adopted as a symbol of sexual assault awareness and prevention. (With material from: Wikipedia)
