Day of Action: What Can You Do?

One day during April’s  Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) is designated as the Day of Action. Today is the day. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center:

The SAAM Day of Action (formerly A Day to End Sexual Violence), to be observed in 2010 on Tuesday, April 20 is recognized nationally as a specific day to focus awareness on sexual violence prevention. Through coordinated planning of special events, advocates can raise awareness, media attention and national momentum for ending and preventing sexual violence. The NSVRC encourages participants and those planning special activities to visit our Event Suggestions page for ideas on how to observe this day in your community and to post your events on the online calendar.

What can you do to prevent sexual violence?

I’d love to hear your ideas about taking action!
