Sexual Assault Awareness/Prevention Month (SAAPM) is recognized annually in May in many provinces across Canada. It is a month dedicated to highlighting the need for support and services to those affected by sexual assault, and to raise awareness that sexual assault is not acceptable in any form. Everyone has the right to feel safe and be safe in their community, their workplace, and their home.

On Friday, May 4th, join us in wearing purple to support the No One Asks For It! campaign in support of survivors of sexual violence. #nooneasksforit
