Each year on the First Tuesday in April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) Day of Action provides a day to focus awareness on sexual violence prevention. SAAM Day of Action brings awareness to sexual violence and its prevention by wearing teal.
The day aims to stop sexual assault, harassment, and abuse before they happen through education. Teaching about consent and understanding boundaries is important, but requires a societal change, too.
Currently, the stigma of sexual assault rests with the victims. Until that view changes, sexual assault will continue to go unpunished.
