April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
We can all use our voices to prevent sexual violence. Prevention requires addressing the root causes and social norms that allow sexual violence to exist.

This April, we're calling on Rhode Islanders to play a critical role in changing the culture. We’re strongest when we raise our voices together, and that’s why we need new voices in the movement to end violence. Join us in helping the next generation foster attitudes that promote healthy relationships, equality, and respect. It's time to speak out and say NO MORE!
