April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)
April 7, 2021 - Dorene DiNaro
Each April the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) sheds lights on sexual assault topics. This year, the LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center, along with the LGBTQ Resource Center and Women’s Resource Center are joining the NSVRC in their pledge to create safe spaces online under the “We Can Build Safe Online Spaces” theme.
Yesterday, Lobos were encouraged to wear teal in support of the day of action and posts photos to social media. They are also hosting events surrounding digital intimacy, cyber sexual abuse and navigating consent online; and identifying and addressing sexual violence in the trans/queer communities. Please follow LoboRESPECT, WRC and the LGBTQ Instagram pages for the latest information.
