The month of April is designated as SAAM in the U.S. in order to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on prevention efforts. HPW organizes and coordinates educational and awareness-building events for the DePaul community in collaboration with numerous campus departments, student organizations, student leaders, and community agencies.
SAAM programs include training sessions, spoken word events, panel discussions, healing yoga, self-defense classes, bystander intervention workshops, film screenings and art installations. They help to build understanding on the prevalence of sexual violence on college campuses, consent, rape culture, healthy relationships, safety tips, resources available on- and off-campus, as well as how to effectively respond to and support a survivor. The entire DePaul community is invited to attend any of the month's programs – students, staff and faculty.
If you would like to bring an event to SAAM, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
