April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month! 

While students are off-campus during the month of April, we are committed to honoring survivors of sexual violence. We hope you will join us in our virtual events. Please check back as we continue to add to our calendar throughout the month.

How can you and your friends get involved in Sexual Assault Awareness Month virtually?

1. Read a book, article, survivor story, or listen/watch media that focuses on survivor stories. Need ideas? Look here:

a. National Sexual Violence Resource Center Library Catalog: https://n80002.eos-intl.net/N80002/OPAC1/Index.aspx

b. Read a book on a survivor story. Perhaps start with 'Know my Name' by Chanel Miller, or 'We Believe You' by Andrea Pino and Annie E. Clark

2. Attend one of our virtual meet-ups. They will be posted throughout the month, and led either by professional confidential staff, or confidential peer educators!

3. Write a love letter to a survivor. We post love letters all around campus during the month of April (and throughout the year). We hope you will join us in doing this virtually!

For example:

Dear Survivor,

We are here for you. Your story and all of your feelings are valid. We are listening and believe you.

Love,

The Center for Victim Advocacy and Violence Prevention

4. Play SAAM Bingo! If you get BINGO, email va@usf.edu and you will recieve a FREE Got Consent t-shirt! BINGO sheet coming soon!
