Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it.
Sexual violence is a major public health, human rights and social justice issue. UAA recently formed a Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition for Change to focus on these concerns.
