The 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign encourages communities and individuals to bring healthy sexuality into the conversation on how we connect, respect and prevent sexual violence.

The 2012 SAAM campaign "It's time...to talk about it!" 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 diologue can build safe, healthy relationships.

HELP CARRY THE WEIGHT    #carrythatweight 

On Monday, April 13, Carry That Weight is calling on students to join together once again and demand that college administrators take REAL action to end gender-based violence and rape culture at our schools.

Without concrete policy changes at the campus level, our campuses will continue to be unsafe. Survivors will not have access to critical resources and perpetrators will not be held responsible for committing violence. This is why we are calling on campuses to demand better policies to prevent and respond to gender-based violence. Schools across the country are joining and in organizing to push for important policy changes--will you be a part of the movement?
