April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

March 28 2019


Sexual Assault Awareness Month is a national campaign to raise public awareness, send a message of support to survivors, and promote the prevention of sexual violence.

Cleveland Rape Crisis Center’s 2019 Sexual Assault Awareness Month theme is “Your Voice Has Power. Tu Voz Tiene Poder.” We can all use our voices to support survivors, promote healing and prevention, and advocate for change.

Survivor, you voice has power. Loved ones, parents, students, bystanders, community leaders, your voices have power. You can use your voice to advocate for change!
