This nationally recognized day provides an opportunity for prevention advocates to engage with their communities.  Plan or support a SAAM event in your community on April 1, and keep the conversation going all month long on NSVRC social networking sites.

SAAM Day of Action

The SAAM Day of Action will be observed on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.  This is nationally recognized in the United States as a specific day to focus awareness on sexual violence prevention. Through coordinated planning of special events, advocates can raise awareness, media attention and national momentum for ending and preventing sexual violence.
