In April, Rape Response commemorated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), an annual campaign to raise public awareness about sexual assault and educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. Staff wore teal outfits and ribbons to recognize the month’s liturgical color. Staff also took part in a number of on-campus events, including UNG’S Clothesline Project and Healthy Relationship Hut. We also tabled at North Georgia Tech’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month March. And to top off the month, we hosted a Rape Response Volunteer Documentary Night, viewing the acclaimed film, ‘Procession‘, & leading a discussion about the impact of the message! Thank you to the staff, volunteers, and interns who participated in SAAM events.
We are always honored to represent our organization, mission, and survivors any chance we get!
