The Center for Health Advocacy and Wellness and the kNOw MORE Student Advisory Board are excited to team with student organizations and campus partners to bring awareness and survivor support to our community this month. April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The year’s theme is “I Ask”. Consent is an important part of everyday interactions. This year, we ask the FSU community to join us as we stand to create a safer and supportive campus community for all. The students of the kNOw MORE Student Advisory Board have worked very hard to organize several opportunities to engage in conversation with us throughout the month. See our SAAM calendar of events below. Please follow @fsuknowmoresab and @fsuchaw to engage with us all month!
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.
Take Back The Night
Take Back the Night is an annual campus-wide event celebrating the strength and resilience of survivors of sexual assault and relationship violence. This event is about sharing the lived experiences of members in our community and holding our campuses accountable to creating change. This year, Take Back The Night is going online! Join us and the TBTN Foundation for a global, live web event on Thursday, April 30th from 8PM to 9PM EST. The live event will feature survivors, poetry, activists, and more!
