This year’s theme, “Engaging New Voices,” provides an exciting opportunity to broaden our reach and engage the greater community in prevention efforts. We recognize the critical work that advocates, educators, and state coalitions do every day in providing victim services, managing important on-the-ground advocacy efforts, and cultivating and strengthening relationships with key stakeholders and media. The NSVRC also supports and encourages the diverse ways that the field commemorates SAAM. Therefore, this media toolkit is intended to serve as a template and guide from which you can utilize and tailor to bolster your individual unique efforts. Our hope is that these tools will help you drive media interest during SAAM to raise awareness and promote prevention.
