Today marks the beginning of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and Project Consent is honored to play its part int he movement to combat sexual assault. We are pleased to announced that our theme for the month of April is to "support survivors" so throughout the month, we will be coming up with original content that will be targeted specifically at survivors of sexual assault.

As an organization that will always support survivors and believe that survivors of sexual assault should be empowered - we believe that this theme fits with our values and are pleased to be working on original content that will be aimed at survivors. So what is #ProjectSAAM18 doing this month?

  1. New Graphics
    Our graphic design team have come up with SIX new graphics such as the one seen above to show survivors that we support them. If you're interested in collaborating with us by using any or all of our graphics, contact our outreach director at liv@projectconsent.com and she will be able to provide you the graphics, copy, and more information regarding this new initiative.
  2. Social Media
    Keep an eye out on our social media (@projectconsent / @consentproject) where we will be interacting with our followers to hear your thoughts during SAAM. We will be doing twitter chats where you'll have a chance to answer some of our questions or ask staff some of your own questions!
  3. Editorial Content
    This month, our editorial team will be publishing weekly round ups on each Friday to discuss what is going on this SAAM, new initiatives, ongoing cases, legislations, and anything in general related to SAAM. In addition, we will be putting out a multitude of new editorial content that will hopefully empower survivors with article topics such as "the logistical steps on what to do after you've been sexually assaulted', personal stories of overcoming their trauma, rape kits, how to support survivors in the long-term, and many more so be sure to be on the lookout on our articles!

April is a month to bring awareness to sexual assault and at Project Consent, this is a movement that we wholeheartedly support. We want all survivors to feel empowered and remember that it is not their fault. This month and always - our theme is to support survivors and we hope we can do so through our original content. Stay tuned to see what's going on this month at #ProjectSAAM18!
