April is sexual assault awareness month. Many may not be aware however the month of April was chosen as a time to educate, prevent and bring awareness to the violence against women. That does not mean that a male can not be sexually assaulted. Sexual violence is any sexual violence or sexual activity where consent is not freely given. Sexual violence affects millions of people each year in the United States. More than 1 in 3 women and nearly 1 in 4 men have experience sexual violence involving physical contact at some point in their lives. Nearly 1 in 5 women and 1 in 38 men have experienced, came close or attempted to have been rape in their lifetimes. Every 98 seconds someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. Over half of these people are between the ages of 18 and 34. Sexual assault, harassment, and abuse are preventable. During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, learn how asking for consent can put an end sexual violence. No means No. Join others and myself as ws discuss this topic to end sexual assaults and provide resources for those that have been sexually assaulted. Live 4/15/19 at 12pm Pacific. Call 516 387-1914 to join in on the conversation.
