Catcalls, sexist comments, flashing, groping, stalking, and assault in public spaces.... Gender-based street harassment impacts all women and many men, especially in the LGBQT community, worldwide. It makes us feel less safe, it restricts where we go. IT MUST END. Join us April 12-18, 2015, as we rally, march, and hold workshops, tweet chats, wheatpasting and chalkwalks to bring attention to this problem & engage our communities in solutions.
Join us on the first Tuesday in April for the Day of Action. SAAM activists chose this day to collectively engage communities to end sexual violence. Plan, attend or post about your community SAAM event.
~~Join an ONLINE day of action for the 4th annual International Day Against Victim-Blaming, commemorating and continuing the amazing ongoing international actions against sexual violence and victim-blaming. Start conversations, post pictures, offer support, make a statement, share a resource. Speak out against the intersections of discrimination and shaming that survivors face as women who were 'asking for it', people who were drunk, as trans* people and queers, as sex workers, as prisoners, as migrants, as people of colour, as people living with disabilities, as men, as children, etc. Victim-blaming comes in all shapes and forms and we need to fight back against all of it to support survivors in our communities. Take up space on April 3rd to fight for the right to live free of sexual violence and victim-blaming. Because survivors deserve our support not our scrutiny. #IDAVB #EndVictimBlaming

The prevention of sexual violence on campus involves many voices and roles. Comprehensive prevention requires partners in every campus role taking action. During this webinar, campus stakeholders from different departments, offices, and programs will learn strategies to effectively practice prevention at colleges and universities.
A recording of the webinar will be available within 48 hours of the event.
Lauren Book, founder of Lauren’s Kids, was a victim of childhood sexual abuse for six years at the hands of her nanny. Armed with the knowledge that 95 percent of sexual abuse is preventable through education, Lauren has worked to turn her horrific personal experience into a vehicle to prevent childhood sexual abuse and heal survivors by starting Lauren’s Kids. Lauren’s Kids encourages victims to “shine a light in dark places” and “shed the shame.” Lauren’s Kids is based in South Florida and educates adults and children about sexual abuse topics through in-school curriculum, a 24-hour Crisis Hotline and speaking engagements around the country. Lauren’s Kids holds an annual, statewide “Walk in My Shoes” event, which brings together survivors and advocates on a walk across Florida to raise awareness and promote supportive legislation. Lauren’s Kids also holds annual fundraisers such as the Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino Golf Tournament and VIP dinner that raise funds for the organization. Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino are the TV broadcast voices of the Miami Heat.Learn more.
