April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), a national effort to bring awareness and an end to sexual assault, harassment, and abuse.
If you are a survivor of sexual violence, know a survivor of sexual violence, or simply support the need for sexual violence prevention, join in the effort by participating in UTHealth Houston’s Day of Action on Tuesday, April 18.
On this day, all university community members are encouraged to wear teal – the color of sexual violence prevention – in observance of the Day of Action. Use #SAAMUTHealthHouston to bring awareness to Sexual Assault Awareness Month on various social media platforms.
UT Police at Houston is also hosting presentations during the month of April in observance of SAAM. Registration is open for a “Conflict in Relationships: Breaking the Cycle of Abuse” specialty class, which will be offered on April 14 and April 21. The course will provide guidance on how to recognize the signs of intimate partner violence, the significance of early action, and reporting options.
For more information on the free presentations, free supplemental resources, and personalized training opportunities, see UT Police’s class schedule.
