Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month
April Is Sexual Assault Awareness Prevention Month (SAAPM). This year's Department of Defense and Navy theme is "Protecting Our People Protects Our Mission." Eliminating sexual assault requires every Service member be a steadfast participant in creating an appropriate culture and upholding military core values.
Commanders are highly encouraged to support unit participation in local SAAPM events utilizing the turn-key products and resources on this page, including guided discussion scripts, event planning materials, and Plan Of the Day/Plan Of the Week notes which will aid Commands in executing SAAPM activities. These events may be sponsored or hosted by the base or area Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, Deployed Resiliency Counselor, Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Victim Advocate, or other first responders.
