April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, and as a women’s organization, raising awareness for this issue and supporting our friends and sisters should be a top priority.
Every 98 seconds, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. Women ages 18-24 in college are three times more likely to experience sexual violence than women outside that age range. Nearly one in four undergraduate females experience sexual violence. These numbers aren’t easy to hear, but we have the power to make a positive impact. Whether you’re a chapter member, advisor or alumna, you can use the tips below to get involved and discuss this issue with those around you.
While the safety of our sisters is always a priority, take advantage of this month to really engage in raising awareness and working to prevent sexual assault on your campus and in your communities. Kappa Delta is committed to building confidence and inspiring action in those around us. Demonstrate those values as we do our part to end sexual violence.
