Greetings all,

Tomorrow is our next “Teal Tuesday”.   Teal is the recognized awareness color for Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention.  Every Tuesday in April, you are encouraged to wear the color teal to raise awareness!  Need some teal?  Stop by one of our SAPR awareness tables at the ARC Bldg. 1766 or in the Wing Bldg. 1654 for: 5K teal t-shirts, teal ribbons and more!  SAPR will be out teal spotting and snapping photos.

This year’s annual SAPR 5K fun walk/run is  open virtually April 1-15. See attached flyer for details.  Join the fun and send a photo wearing your 5k t-shirt or send a group picture with family, friends or co-workers.  Submit photo/selfie to for random drawing for prizes and to be a part of this year's 301FW photo collage.

Don’t forget virtual “iRest (Integrative Restoration) available in April (see calendar for details).  Treat yourself to 35 minutes of evidence-based, relaxing self-care practice. The benefits are like getting 2 extra hours of sleep!

National Crime Victims' Right Week is April 24-30th -   This year, the Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC)’s official NCVRW theme is Rights, Access, Equity for all Victims.

27 APRIL - Denim Day ~ Be one of the millions of people across the world as they wear jeans with a purpose, support survivors, and educate themselves and others about all forms of sexual violence. Pledge to make a social statement with your fashion statement and wear denim on April 27th.

Why is this month so important? Globally, 1 in 3 women worldwide has been subjected to either physical or sexual violence in her lifetime. In the U.S., someone is sexually assaulted every 68 seconds. Clearly, we need to increase awareness and action to address this sexual violence that one in three women and one in six men experience in their lifetimes.

This year, we are focused on ending sexual violence everywhere—including our online spaces—because harassment, assault, and abuse can happen anywhere. As our lives and business are increasingly conducted online, it’s important to know how to practice digital consent, intervene when we see harmful content or behaviors, and ensure that online spaces—whether they be workspaces, classrooms, social media platforms, or otherwise—are respectful and safe. If you would like more information on a conversation guide for Parents & Caregivers, “Talking Healthy Relationship” @, guides are available to use for when starting conversations about healthy relationship.

Thank you for all you do!
