April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month & Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is quickly approaching and Hope House staff and volunteers are working on projects for Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and Child Abuse Prevention Month.
We're planning things like Denim Day (April 25), community displays and booths, poster distribution, and radio PSAs and letters to the editor. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for more information and ways you can get involved! In the meantime, visit the National Sexual Violence Resource Center's SAAM page to learn more about this year's theme "Embrace Your Voice."
March is Women's History Month
March is Women's History Month and this year's theme is "Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women." Learn more from the National Women's History Project and check out this Time article, Why 'Nevertheless, She Persisted' Is the Theme for This Year's Women's History Month.
