Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month!

Sacramento State supports survivors and ending sexual violence. Sacramento State has been working diligently to create a campus culture of safety and inclusion. In keeping with this commitment, Student Health, Counseling, and Wellness Services (SHCWS) and WEAVE have partnered to co-host various events and activities to celebrate Sexual Assault Awareness Month honor survivors of sexual violence and raise awareness to end sexual violence in our community.

SHCWS, WEAVE, and other campus organizations have been working all month long to offer resources, education, workshops, outreach, and more to support survivors and promote a shift in culture that continuously acknowledges, believes, and supports survivors.

For more information on activities, events or accommodations, contact Sac State’s Confidential Campus Advocate at or Associate Director of Health and Wellness at Follow @shcwssacstate and @weaveatsacstate on Instagram to stay up to date with other events during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Denim Day & Take Back the Night

Wednesday, April 24 | 4:00 - 7:00 pm, Library Quad

Denim Day has been observed worldwide on the last Wednesday in April since 1999. It started after the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans. Each year we continue to wear denim to show support for survivors of sexual violence and take a stand to show that clothing does not equal consent. Join us in the Library Quad for the Denim Day Resource Fair to decorate denim in support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The resource fair will be followed by Take Back the Night, which is our annual march through campus to empower survivors and advocate for an end to sexual violence. Take Back the Night started as a protest in March of 1972, when women began marching on their campuses together in an organized and intentional manner, demanding a less violent future. At Sac State, we continue to march each year. Register to attend Denim Day & Take Back the Night
