Since 2001, PCAR and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center have officially observed April as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).
“Observing SAAM throughout April each year is one way that advocates, survivors and members of our communities bring awareness to the issue of preventing sexual assault and rape” —-PCAR CEO Delilah Rumburg.
PCAR’s SAAM campaigns ,in conjunction with the work of the National SAAM campaign, have empowered many groups and individuals across the Commonwealth to make a difference in preventing sexual violence in our communities.
The color teal and teal awareness ribbon has been chosen to represent awareness about sexual violence nationwide.
Wear Teal Day in Bucks County – Friday, April 12, 2019
In 2000, sexual violence coalitions across the country voted to designate teal as the official color of sexual assault awareness month. On April 12th, we ask you to join us in wearing something teal to show your support for victims of sexual violence, and for those working to end sexual violence in our community.
