May is Sexual Violence Awareness Month

Friday, April 23, 2021

Raising awareness about sexual violence is essential, but we can and should do so much more

May is Sexual Violence Awareness month, and it provides the opportunity to not only increase awareness about sexual violence, but also to build and strengthen capacity to end sexual violence on our campuses and broader communities.  

The Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office, along with partners like the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region (SASC), have created opportunities this month for all campus community members to work individually and collectively to end sexual violence.  

Please share these workshops, events, and resources widely within your networks. There is power in standing with survivors, and in normalizing important conversations about consent, healthy sexual relationships, being an upstander and ally, and supporting survivors in our lives. 

Many of these opportunities centre the voices and experiences of survivors and the realty of the ongoing trauma faced by survivors. Please take care of yourself, and only engage in learning opportunities that feel safe for you.
