SAAM 2015

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)

SAAM

In the United States April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it.

Palm Beach County Victim Services on Australian Ave in West Palm Beach kicked off SAAM by decorating their field with 585 flags representing the total number of new cases over the last year. This number has decreased from last year’s 678 reported victims. They also inscribed “No More” on the fence; meaning no more victims, no more rape, and no more victim blame.
