The LGBTQ+ Center partnered with us to host a special edition of their weekly C3 (Building Community over Coffee and Conversation) in honor of SAAM. We talked about consent from a queer lens, and LGBTQ+ Center staff taught us a lot about queer theory. Want to continue this conversation? We do too, feel free to reach out!
Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) is held every April. This year, the Safe Office events to honor survivors looked and felt different during COVID-19. We are grateful for the wonderful community building that occurred remotely. Thank you for engaging with us virtually. Below is a culmination of resources related to SAAM that we featured and talked about throughout April.
Trigger warning: These resources contain detailed accounts of sexual and interpersonal violence. They also contain commentaries about how race, gender, sexual orientation, documentation status, legal history/incarceration, and ability status intersect with survivorship and experiences of violence. Take care of yourself. The Safe Office is available on our 24/7 crisis line 336.758.5285.
