Support Survivors around the country for #SAAM2023
April marks Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)! This year’s theme is “Drawing Connections: Prevention Demands Equity.” The campaign calls on all individuals, communities, organizations, and institutions to change ourselves and the systems surrounding us to build racial equity and respect.
This year in honor of #SAAM2023 we are hosting our very first SAAM Day of Giving. NSVRC and our founding organization PCAR envision a word free from sexual harassment, assault, and abuse. We are counting on everyone to support our mission to eliminate all forms of sexual violence and advocate for the rights and needs of victims.
Help us to mark the SAAM Day of Giving on April 13, 2023 by making a donation to support our work. Your gift enables us to support survivors, share our resources, and engage the public in preventing sexual assault.
Our fundraising goal is $2,500. Every gift, no matter the size, results in even more support for survivors of sexual harassment, assault, and abuse.
Looking for other ways to show support? Make an impact in your state, region, or community
Sexual Assault Awareness Month is also a great opportunity to make a local impact. There is a national network of community-based rape crisis centers and local organizations who support the needs of sexual assault survivors. These centers exist across the United States to provide supportive services to victims of sexual assault. Every state and territory also has an organization designated to coordinate resources and represent that state or territory as its coalition.
You can show support by identifying the organizations in your state, region, or community. Connect with them to attend events, volunteer, donate, or fundraise.
- NSVRC maintains a directory of organizations that lists state and territory sexual assault coalitions, victim/survivor support organizations, and local communities of color sexual assault organizations. You can contact your state or territory’s coalition to find local resources that provide services to survivors.
- You can also find a rape crisis center or sexual assault program near you by searching RALIANCE's directory of local programs.
