April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Each year Henderson House recognizes Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) by dedicating our communications efforts to spreading the word about the realities faced by survivors of sexual assault and the services that we offer to support these survivors.

This year, our SAAM theme is “Together we can cultivate a violence free Oregon.” We believe that sexual violence is preventable, but it is not the burden of victims to prevent the violence perpetrated against them. It is all of our responsibility – as a community and as a society – to cultivate the values that lead to the respect of boundaries and dismantle those that fuel sexual violence.

In addition to engaging in our communications campaign, we invite our community to show your support for the survivors Henderson House serves by participating in a few activities that will benefit Henderson House this April:

  • Wednesday, April 5th (4pm–7pm)
