April 20th is Sexual Assault Awareness Month’s Day of Action. This year’s theme is preventing sexual violence on our campuses. Hopefully you have thought about how you would like to commemorate this day, but if you haven’t, NSVRC has some fantastic suggestions for you. Although it’s just under a month away, there’s still time to make this day impactful. I would really love to see clinicians participating in some way, because prevention is a critical part of our role.
Whatever you choose to do, I hope you’ll come back here and let us know all about it. As added incentive, I have a lovely giveaway for one random reader who leaves a comment. I’m not quite ready to reveal the specifics of the giveaway yet, but I promise to soon (and it’s something we’ve never given away on the site, so I’m pretty excited). Just let me know 2 things: 1.) How you commemorated the day (or any day during SAAM); and 2.) One inspiring aspect of the day or of the event you attended. I will provide weekly reminders leading up to the giveaway, which will be chosen on May 4th. I can’t wait to hear what people have done. Canadian and non-North American readers, and of course, all of our non-clinician readers, please consider participating, as well.
