Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Each year, the University of Denver recognizes Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) during the month of April by hosting a number of awareness and education events for the DU community. SAAM is a national campaign observed every April to raise awareness about consent and sexual assault. Join us this year as we host a series of events, both virtual and in person, including educational workshops, survivor support spaces and our annual "Take Back the Night" program, as well as a series of events to recognize Denim Day – an international day to draw attention to sexual violence and show support for survivors. Other programs will include trauma-informed yoga, a healthy sexual communication workshop, and ongoing education for staff, faculty, and graduate students. We will also support programs led by organizations, residence halls, and FSL chapters or sports teams on campus.
