El abril es hora de iniciar un diálogo, y el tema de la conversación es la sexualidad saludable. El campaña 2012 del Mes de Conciencia sobre la Violencia Sexual (SAAM) motiva a comunidades y personas a unirse al diálogo acerca de cómo nos comunicamos y nos respetamos mutuamente para prevenir la violencia sexual. En inglés.
The 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign encourages communities and individuals to join the conversation on how we connect and respect one another in order to prevent sexual violence.
The 2012 SAAM campaign provides tools and resources that focus on promoting positive expressions of sexuality and healthy behaviors. Promoting healthy behaviors encourages sexual interactions and relationships that are consensual, respectful and informed. By starting the conversation, this dialogue can build safe, healthy relationships and communities. Many resources are also available in Spanish.
