April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), a time that is set aside to help raise awareness and draw attention to the prevalence of sexual violence in our state and across the nation. In New Hampshire, sexual assault is a serious crime, where 1 in 4 women and 1 in 20 men have reported experiencing some form of sexual violence in their lifetimes.
One way to participate is to help engage with your community and provide education on what sexual violence is, how it affects victims and our communities, and what we can do to prevent abuse before it occurs. We have created a series of template social media posts and accompanying graphics that you can use throughout this awareness month. This toolkit includes posts for Twitter Facebook, and Instagram, but feel free to also use the graphics and post text for other social media platforms. Thank you for your support!
