#SAAM - April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month! Say NO MORE!

Why? Because 1 in 5 women is a survivor of rape, and 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men have experienced some form of sexual violence in their lives. NO MORE. 

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Learn how you can be part of the solution and say #NOMORE to sexual assault by clicking HERE to learn more! The NO MORE campaign was started by Law and Order Special Victims Unit's lead actress, Mariska Hargitay. 

She has made a HUGE difference in my life just by watching the show for so many years, as well as the lives of so many survivors and families of survivors through her courage and persistance to start making changes in the United States by saying NO MORE to sexual assault, as well as domestic violence. She has done so so so much to influence survivors JUST through being the most caring detective now sargent on SVU which you can watch on Wednesday nights at 9pm on NBC! 

She has helped so many survivors gain the courage to speak up and out on these horrible crimes and press charges. Yes, I know that it's "just a show", but it also pertains to real life issues that women and girls and even men / boys face today. She's a very compassionate person and I would be honored to be able to meet her someday. I really do hope to be able to.


  1. This subject is so important to get the word out about. I know of a few people that have been through this :(

    1. It is to me as well. I was assaulted in 2006, so I do all I can to make the awareness known to all! =[ I am on the NO MORE email list, so when I see important things like this, I post them.

      Before moving out of state, I attended 2010 - 2014 event called Take Back the Night. It's an awesome event that takes place usually on college campuses around the United States in April and is an awareness event specifically for sexual assault. Police officers, examiners, and survivors speak out at the event. It's 2 hours away from here :( so I can't go this year. At the event, they give out free t-shirts, gear, foods, and awareness information. It's also usually a candle-lit walk
