SAAM "Day of Action"
Tuesday, April 1, 2014
This nationally recognized day provides an opportunity for advocates and activists to engage with their communities and kick-off SAAM events that are planned throughout April. This year, proclaim “It’s time … to talk about it” by using social media to join the conversation. Plan or support a SAAM event in your community on April 1st, and keep the conversation going all month long.

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. The NSVRC encourages participants and those planning special activities to visit our Event Suggestions page for ideas on how to observe this day in your community and to post your events on the online calendar.
This year, proclaim “It’s time … to talk about it” by using social media to join the conversation. By changing your profile pictures and focusing your status updates, tweets, and blog posts on SAAM and the Day of Action, you can engage online communities in sexual violence prevention.
