Following the announcement of a mistrial in Bill Cosby’s criminal trial, we’re reminded that while the criminal justice system is an important venue for survivors to seek justice and healing, it cannot be the only one — and it cannot become more effective in a vacuum. We all have a role to play in making our communities safer and more supportive of survivors. Only then will survivors find real justice.

As we look ahead to the start of a new year, we can set our sights on the 2017 Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign!

During Sexual Assault Awareness Month survivors and advocates engage the greater community in prevention efforts. We know that one month isn’t enough to solve the serious and widespread issue of sexual violence. But the attention April generates is an opportunity to energize and expand prevention efforts.

There were many powerful moments throughout April -- let’s take a look back at some of the highlights.
