I’d be lying if I tried to deny that the most repeated phrase I’ve been saying the past few weeks is, “Can you believe it’s November?” In the beginning of the month, you could still hear the surprise in my voice, but at times this confession felt like a plea. Really, November, chill out. Suffice it to say, it’s been a busy month. I’m on pretty friendly terms with busy, and I can let you know we hit some major planning milestones and deadlines this month.

Last week I had the opportunity to take the SAAM act on the road, and I was fortunate to be heading to one of my favorite places on the planet: Jersey.

Whether you are looking to inspire social action or convince people to purchase a product, impact is your first opportunity to move your audience.

Planning for Sexual Assault Awareness Month has entered the second trimester, so to speak, as we are now counting down less than 6 months to April 2013. Whoa baby, the time is flying! On the backstage side of things, we are still in limbo with a number of deadlines leading up to the release of resource materials online and by mail in January. But there have been many planning milestones in recent weeks, and I’d like to provide a sneak peak on the topic of our upcoming campaign resources: Healthy childhood sexual development.
