The SAAM Syllabus is an introduction to Sexual Assault Awareness Month, violence prevention, advocacy, and trauma. The SAAM Syllabus is a collection of history, academic articles and journals, and playlists that explore sexual violence, consent, bystander intervention, public policy, and how they intersect with identity. This syllabus is a living and breathing document and will grow as we continue to grow in our prevention efforts. We publish this syllabus with hopes that you will engage with it, call yourself in, and learn more about sexual violence to create the more supportive community we are actively working towards. You can access the syllabus here.
