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. We couldn’t be more excited to see voices around the world chiming in as prevention partners and engaging communities. Here’s a look at what’s in store for SAAM 2015.
