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 Our Voices Will Be Heard! During the month of April, many Sacramento State Departments and Centers will come together to educate, offer resources, workshops, Art Exhibit, outreach, a march in solidarity 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.

Breaking Out of the Box

April 19, 2022 - 2:30 pm, University Union Cottonwood Suite III (2nd Floor)

This presentation discusses how gender roles impact our views of sexual violence and rape culture. By breaking out of the box in our gender roles, we can empower survivors and change the culture to end sexual violence on our campus.

Denim Day

April 27, 12:00 - 3:00 pm, Library Quad

This worldwide annual even results from a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans. As an act of solidarity, we wear and display denim jeans to end victim blaming and better understand that clothing does not equal consent. Stop by to participate in a rich discussion on supporting survivors and educating yourself about sexual violence.

Exhibit Dates: April 4-8, 2022, University Union, 2nd Floor, Exhibit Lounge

The show is an artistic expression of empowerment for survivors and sexual violence created by survivors, allies, and those who need support.


M-Thu - 6:30am - 11:00pm
Friday - 6:30am - 9:00pmn
Saturday - 8:00am - 8:00pm
Sunday - 10:00am - 11:00pm

Take Back the Night

April 29, 6:30 - 8:00 pm, In Front of The WELL

Starting as a protest in March of 1972, women began marching on their campuses together in an organized and intentional manner, demanding a less violent future. In an attempt to stand united, we continue to march every year. Take Back the Night is a march that takes power back for survivors. It is also a protest that demands safety while promoting the end of gendered violence and focuses on marginalized groups while empowering survivors to share their stories through an open mic forum (optional).
