March is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in Kentucky!
This is an annual opportunity to focus attention statewide on raising awareness about sexual violence and its prevention. It is also an opportunity to highlight the efforts of individuals and agencies that provide rape crisis intervention and prevention services while offering support to sexual assault survivors, victims and their families. SAAM raises awareness of sexual violence and its prevention through special events, while highlighting sexual violence as a major public health issue and reinforcing the need for prevention efforts.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month Awards (SAAMys) are designed to honor individuals who have made exceptional contributions to Kentucky’s movement against sexual victimization. SAAMy recipients were selected by a committee of victim service professional from a pool of nominations submitted from individuals throughout the Commonwealth. Honorees were selected based on their efforts that focused on sexual violence with the long-term impact of those efforts, the length of their commitment to the ending sexual violence, and their collaborations with victim services programs.
