Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month

At RAINN, we’re dedicated to supporting survivors of sexual violence every day of the year—but each April for Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (#SAAPM) we do a little something different. During SAAPM, we ask individuals and communities across the country to engage with this issue by learning more about sexual violence, sharing information, bringing together our community, volunteering, and donating. Below we have everything you need—information, planning tips, social media posts and graphics—so you can easily share, tweet, and tag with @RAINN throughout the month. Together, we can support survivors and change the way our communities respond to sexual violence.

#ConsentRULES

For SAAPM 2021, we’re talking about things you need in every relationship: consent and boundaries. At its core, consent is about communicating, understanding, and respecting another person’s boundaries, and vice versa. Let’s review 5 rules for obtaining, confirming, and honoring consent.
