With only a few weeks until April, the weather is getting warmer and SAAM is in the air. In all our years of Sexual Assault Awareness Month planning, April 2015 stands out as packed with action and activism.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month is less than a month away. Are you ready for April 2015? The SAAM 2015 campaign is all about campus sexual violence prevention. It’s a call to action to create safer campuses and brighter futures for all.  Everyone has a role to play in creating change.

Did you know it’s National Eating Disorder Awareness Week? It’s never too late to show your support for #NEDAwareness.

It’s a time of year when everyone is love-struck by love. Or at least that’s what advertisers may want us to think.

This preventionist is back to school, literally. Last fall, I started graduate school. Here I find myself in the interesting position of being both a professional in the field and a student. My first day back on campus it became clear to me that these days college is a whole other ballgame.

For the past few days my relationship with media has been tumultuous. I find myself in a shuffle between diving into the headlines and a strong desire to duck-and-cover.

This week, I'm excited to share more with you about the theme for SAAM 2015. If you saw us at the National Sexual Assault Conference, or if you have been poking around our webpages, you might already know the scoop. Drum roll please... 

Last week I had the incredible opportunity to join over one thousand advocates and activists at this year’s National Sexual Assault Conference in Pittsburgh, PA.
