Coordinated Community Response Team

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

The goal of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) is to raise awareness about sexual violence and to educate the Loyola community on how we all play a role in preventing it.  Prevention requires addressing the roots causes and social norms that allow sexual violence to exist. This April, we're calling on groups whose influence can play a critical role in changing the culture, with a specific focus on men, faith leaders, and athletes.
