April- Sexual assault awareness month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Every April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month strives to be a voice of the victims of sexual abuse and violence. The mission is to increase awareness about sexual violence worldwide and educate communities on how to prevent it. The term “sexual assault” is an umbrella term that includes all of the following:



✔️Unwanted sexual contact of any other form

✔️Sexual harassment


✔️Child Sexual Abuse

✔️Sexual violence, even with an intimate partner

✔️Sexual exploitation

✔️Human trafficking


If you or anyone you know is experiencing any of these or experiences them in the future, call the police. Sexual assault is a crime, and no one should take it lightly. Do not be afraid to speak out if this happens to you.
