"The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence (focusing on sexual assault and rape) and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. Here on the SAAM site, you will find information and materials for both the upcoming SAAM campaign as well as past campaigns. While the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) creates these campaign materials for SAAM, we encourage state and local organizations and groups focused on sexual violence awareness and prevention to tailor these campaign materials to their local communities. "
"The Office on Violence Against Women joins victim advocates around the country to recognize April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. OVW is committed to providing national leadership in the effort to confront and stop sexual violence, a significant crime against women at home and abroad. This month we recognize the tireless efforts of advocates and organizations who are working everyday to raise awareness in their communities and throughout the world."

We are in the process of translating all of our pages into Spanish with the generous help of one of our local friends. They will be added to the site as they become available rather than waiting until they are all translated and then uploading them. Until such time that the entire site has been completely translated, links to newly translated pages will be provided here as they are completed. Once substantial content has been done we will provide a more prominent and convenient link to the Spanish home page from the main menu here on the English pages' home page. Check back here frequently for updates.
