April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Sexual Assault Awareness Month is an opportunity to raise public awareness about sexual violence. Sexual assault is any sexual activity that occurs when consent is not freely given. This includes situations where a person is unable to give consent, for example when a person is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
