This April, we’ll ask you to again Embrace Your Voice! The past year has been especially hard, and it’s more important than ever to educate our communities about sexual violence, services available for victims, and how we can work to prevent this violence.

Join us for 2021 Sexual Assault Awareness Month by using this resource we’ve created for you – our members!

How You Can Use This Resource

Throughout this packet, you’ll find various tools for brainstorming and planning. These support you in engaging with the community you serve during 2021 Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

We hope these tools will allow you to spark conversations in your communities with the ultimate goal of serving and supporting survivors, engaging co-survivors and community members, and raising funds to support the sustainability of your programs. In this packet, you’ll find some examples of what we’ve created for you, and on our site you can access and download all the files.

These tools have the capability of connecting us in solidarity all across Ohio, linked by our commitment to ending sexual violence. Toward the end of the month, we also have the opportunity to be in community with one another online for our annual Advocacy Day, where #TheTimeIsNow to engage our legislators—and each other—in deep discussions about our state’s needs and how those needs have increased since the beginning of 2020!
