History of Sexual Assault Action Month

"Even before its official declaration, Sexual Assault Awareness Month was about both awareness and prevention of sexual assault, harassment, and abuse. Looking at the history of the movement to end sexual violence, it’s clear why: It’s impossible to prevent an issue no one knows about, and it’s difficult to make people aware of a problem without providing a solution. The two work in tandem, and they always have. From the civil rights movement to the founding of the first rape crisis centers to national legislation and beyond, the roots of SAAM run deep.” (NSVRC)

If you want to read more about the roots of the movement, visit the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s website.  

In 2021, Safer transitioned from the "Awareness Months" framing to "Action Months," promoting our collective responsibility to move beyond just awareness - and to do something. Learn how you can join the movement here.
