April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month!

The Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault invites you to join us in marking April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)! With 1 in 5 women experiencing rape during her lifetime and 1 in 7 men experiencing severe physical abuse at the hands of an intimate partner, the goal of SAAM is to raise awareness about the vast incidence of sexual violence in our country. At the same time, we also want to share with you ways that we can all work to prevent sexual assault in Maryland and beyond.

MCASA, along with the state’s 17 rape crisis and recovery centers, will be marking the month by hosting a number of special events. To find an event near you, visit: http://bit.ly/GYhoxD.

MCASA extends a warm thanks to all of its partners for their continued work and committment to ending sexual violence in our state. It is an honor and a pleasure to be working with each and every one of you!
