SAAM- April 2017

Sexual Assault Awareness Month, April 1 – April 30, 2017 at University of Illinois at Chicago

Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) begins April 1, 2017 and continues throughout the month of April.

The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it. The Women’s Leadership and Resource Center (WLRC) and the Campus Advocacy Network (CAN) are presenting several events in support of SAAM.

The University of Illinois (UIC) is committed to creating and sustaining a campus environment where sexual violence is unacceptable and survivors are supported. At UIC we know that our work to end gender based violence is ongoing and comprehensive. While we highlight the work of our efforts during this month, we’re cognizant that our commitments and labors are ongoing. To learn about other ways to end sexual violence throughout the year contact the Campus Advocacy Network at UIC.

For a full schedule of the month’s events, including times and locations, please see the schedule

All events will take place at WLRC/CAN’s new location, 1101 West Taylor Street, Third Floor above the Chicago Public Library, unless otherwise stated.

WLRC/CAN’s space is accessible; please call (312) 413-1025 or email can.wlrc@gmail.com for accommodations.
