May is Sexual Violence Awareness Month
Sexual Violence Awareness Month (SVAM) is a time to raise awareness of sexual violence, create spaces of support for those impacted and commit to making meaningful changes to end sexual violence.
This year’s theme of this years campaign is ‘Change Begins With You’. This campaign calls on each person to create meaningful social change. Whether that be to learn more about the issue, engage in meaningful conversations with friends and family members or to engage in advocacy and volunteering. They will instill values of compassion and social change and ultimately lead to the end of sexual violence.
We hope you’ll join us and engage in our events and our #31DaysofSVAM on Instagram.
