Sexual Assault Awareness Month:Rising Up Against Sexual Violence


In partnership with Atlas:DIY, The Healing Center, Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE) and BYP 100 we're coming together for a series of events to shed light on the impact of sexual violence, how it intersects with our communities and all the ways YOU can join to end it. 

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and our communities are coming together to uplift our voices and rise up against sexual violence. Sexual violence impacts individuals and communities every single day across the world. We are rising in solidarity and affirming our commitment that we want to see and live in a world free of violence. We invite you and your loved ones to join us in shaping this vision into a reality.
