..Sexual Assault Awareness Month..
How can youth get involved?
"We want to uplift youth voices with our Create to Prevent
campaign because we know that youth are being exposed to sexual assault through different avenues.
We are asking community members, specifically youth, to continue the conversation around sexual assault in a creative way. We are asking participants to submit a creation of any medium - painting, drawing, poetry, TikTok video - that focuses on the topic of sexual assault, specifically cyber sexual harassment, consent, supporting survivors, or boundaries. We will be choosing winners in different categories and they will get the chance to win a pair of Beats headphones, gift cards, and STESA swag! We will then showcase submissions on our social media at the end of April." - Bianca Orozco, Community Education Coordinator, STESA
On April 28, 2021, millions of people across the world will wear jeans with a purpose, support survivors, and educate themselves and others about all forms of sexual violence.
DVS will be participating again this year - check our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages on April 28 to see our staff and board rocking their denim in support of SAAM.
