April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM), a time to raise awareness and prevention to put an end to sexual violence in military and civilian communities. Our goal is to create a safer culture and to achieve this, we have organized a range of events and activities throughout April centered around this year's theme: "Step forward, prevent, report, and advocate."

The 301st Fighter Wing Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention SAPR team has recently grown with the addition of two new full-time victim advocates. We have an exciting lineup of events throughout April, including social media campaigns, outreach programs, and awareness programs. New events this year include a SAPR teal theme Door Decorating Contest and a denim square ribbon decorating event for the National Denim Day campaign group photo. We encourage you to join in, whether it is for our annual SAPR 5K fun run, “Teal Tuesdays” or other SAPR activities throughout the Wing. Together we can make a difference.

While April is highlighted as the awareness month, our collective efforts continue throughout the year. #notjustApril! We are committed to empowering our community to prevent sexual violence and support survivors. We are here to help you out if you need our services!
