Strengthening Military-Civilian Community Partnerships to Respond to Sexual Assault is an interactive two-day training that will help participants establish partnerships with local military installations in order to effectively respond to the needs of sexual assault victims in the military. Throughout this training, participants will build knowledge about military systems, protocols, and culture to improve service provision to military sexual assault victims and to develop an appreciation of the perspectives of their future collaborative partners. It is through this developing sense of awareness that civilians will begin to understand who the military Service Member is, the culture they need to live and operate in, what motivates him/her, and what the military victim needs when working with community-based advocates. With the knowledge gained through this training process, in combination with their existing expertise in sexual assault, participants will be able to serve as knowledgeable resources to military installations throughout the United States.
This year, Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April) will focus on the power of bystanders and what can be done to prevent sexual violence.

Women’s Crisis Support ~ Defensa de Mujeres would like to invite you to participate in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Saturday, April 9th at Lighthouse Point on West Cliff Drive in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ®: The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence is a nationwide event that invites families to participate in a one mile walk, literally in her shoes by wearing women’s high heels, to raise awareness around issues of rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks community members to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence.
WEAVE challenges Sacramento men to walk in high heels in an effort to increase awareness about sexual assault. This event gives men the opportunity to put themselves in women’s shoes while showing support for a great cause.
The Community March to End Sexual Assault is a positive avenue for teams of coworkers, families, neighbors and churches to stand up against sexual violence in our community. Last year over 100 men, women and children marched down Main Street with teams made up of local businesses, community service organizations, schools and individuals.
As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Walk Against Rape will be held on Saturday, April 30th, 2011. Walk Against Rape is a 3.5 mile walk starting at The Women's Building at 10:00AM and culminating in a festival at 1:00PM at Potrero del Sol Park ("La Raza Park). Walkers will arrive in the park to find speakers, performances, vendors, the Clothesline Project on display, prizes for the highest fundraisers, several community organizations who will be offering information and resources, and food and drink. Walkers interested in participating can download a registration form and begin to collect donations from their friends and family. All proceeds will benefit San Francisco Women Against Rape.
