SAAM is here!

Are you ready for April? It's here! April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and it's an exciting time to use our voices to raise awareness and prevent sexual violence. 

The 2013 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign  focuses on healthy sexuality and child sexual abuse prevention. This April, join the conversation. Start talking about healthy childhood development to prevent child sexual abuse. These campaign tools help to answer the question, "What do you need to know about childhood sexual development?"
