Sexual Assault Awareness Month
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month!
Sacramento State has been working diligently to create a campus culture of safety and inclusion. In keeping with this commitment, Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) and WEAVE have partnered to co-host a lineup of events and activities to celebrate Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This year's theme is Liberating Survivors. During the month of April, many Sacramento State Departments and Centers will come together to educate, offer resources, workshops, self-care opportunities, movie showings, and more. Sexual Assault Awareness Month is here to stand in solidarity with survivors and promote a shift in culture that acknowledges them, believes them, and supports them.
For more information on activities, events or accommodations, email Sac State’s Confidential Campus Advocate: Laura Swartzen at firstname.lastname@example.org or SHCS Healthy Relationships Health Educator: Astin Williams at Astin.Williams@csus.edu
Every week on Instagram, the Dreamer Resource Center’s Wisdom Wednesday campaign educates students from immigrant backgrounds and their allies about issues and topics that are top-of-mind for these communities. During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the center will collaborate with Student Health and Counseling Services to bring attention to sexual assault among undocumented and immigrant communities. Every Wednesday, the center’s posts will focus on facts and statistics, resources available, how to be an ally for survivors, etc.
Follow the Dreamer Resource Center on Instagram (@sacstatedrc) to view these posts.
Join Weekly Trivia Nights with University Housing Services! During the month of April, there will be a portion of this event that will test your skills about facts and truths around consent and sexual assault awareness. Thursdays in April at 7 pm (except April 8th).
