Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) 2023

Since 2001, the national Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign has been observed every April. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence, educate communities on how to prevent it, and bolster prevention efforts throughout the year.


The theme of Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2023 is “Drawing Connections: Prevention Demands Equity.” This April's campaign calls on all individuals, communities, organizations, and institutions to change ourselves and the systems surrounding us to build racial equity and respect.

SAAM Webinar Series: Intersectional Conversations

Join us to discuss unique issues affecting sexual assault survivors with a panel of community partners.

Wear Teal Day of Action!

The first Tuesday of every April is the SAAM Day of Action. The Day of Action is an opportunity to start off the month with highly visible and coordinated actions. Show your support for survivors of sexual harassment and abuse by wearing teal — the color of sexual violence prevention. By wearing teal, you are signaling that you support survivors and are a safe person to talk to if they need to reach out.

SAAM Day of Action/Wear Teal Day 2023 is Tuesday, April 4th!


Denim Day

Wear jeans to take a stand against victim-blaming in honor of Denim Day. Denim Day is all about spreading awareness around sexual violence issues, supporting survivors, and educating ourselves and others.

Denim Day 2023 is Wednesday, April 26th!
