SAAM 2017
2017 Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign! 
 
The Theme: Engaging New Voices
We can all use our voices to change the culture to prevent sexual violence. Prevention requires addressing the root causes and social norms that allow sexual violence to exist. This April we're calling on groups whose influence can play a critical role in changing those causes and norms.
We’re strongest when we raise our voices together, and that’s why we’re engaging new groups in the movement. These groups can help the next generation foster attitudes that promote healthy relationships, equality, and respect. These new voices will have a ripple effect on those that they teach, guide, and influence.

April 4 - Clothesline Progrject @ TTU RUC Room.  Call for directions.  

The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular women's experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her.You can come by the Women's Center during office hours to leave a shirt for the display or to make one.

The Clothesline Project started with thirty-one shirts hung in Hyannis, Massachusetts in the fall of 1990. Since that time, projects have been started in communities all across the U.S. and in other countries .The TTU Women's Center has been involved since 1998. Our collection is generally displayed in the RUC for one day in April during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
