April 3, 2017
Since 2001, groups across the country have recognized April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. While the issue certainly isn’t new on our campuses or in our communities, it is as important now as ever.
Every 98 seconds, someone in America is sexually assaulted. Women ages 18-24 in college are three times more likely to experience sexual violence than women outside of that age range. Nearly 1 in 4 undergraduate females experience sexual violence. As a women’s organization, raising awareness for this issue and supporting our friends and sisters is a high priority. What can we do to be a part of the solution? Check out the ideas below.
While the safety of our sisters is always a priority, take advantage of this month to really engage in raising awareness and work 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.
