April 2022: Sexual Assault Awareness Month
April is an exciting time in Alaska; Days get longer, winter starts to disappear, and we bring our community together to raise awareness about prevention, education as well as support and advocacy for Survivors.
We are frequently adding events to our calendar, so be sure to check back for the most up-to-date information about how you join this year's campaign. Together, we can end sexual violence in Alaska.
Ways to Get Involved
Participate in Denim Day on Wednesday, April 27!
Denim Day is the annual sexual assault awareness event that works to start conversations about the destructive attitudes surrounding sexual assault, such as victim blaming. Wear jeans with a purpose and share these images on your social channels to take a stand against victim-blaming in honor of Denim Day. For more information about Denim Day, check out denimdayinfo.org.
Sign up for the next STAR Crisis Line Volunteer Training scheduled for May 2-24, 2022.
