April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This year's theme is "It's time..to get involved." The campaign encourages witnesses of sexual assault to speak up and get involved in their communities.
The campaign also focuses on speaking up to prevent sexual violence in our neighborhoods, communities, workplaces and schools. From April 12th to April 16th Kutztown University students are taking a stand against sexual assault and campus violence with a week of events and educational visuals for "End Campus Violence Week." You can get involved and take part in these great events.
