April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). SAAM calls attention to the harm rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment brings to our communities, as well as reminding us of the importance of standing with and supporting survivors.

Rape Victim Advocates (RVA) will be hosting a variety of events in Chicago to commemorate Sexual Assault Awareness Month, including an Open Mic Night and a Standing Silent Witness demonstration at Daley Plaza. Visit their website for more information.
