April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and LASKI has gone teal to recognize this important movement! Teal is the official color so be sure to tag #SAAM and #LASKIpodcast to show yours off.
We have to remind people to “Start By Believing” and have a month dedicated to awareness for sexual assault. This is why we can’t have nice things.
Kirsta went to the End Violence Against Women International Conference. She learned so much. Kim was jealous. Some of the campaigns she discusses are available to explore through EVAWI’s website at http://www.startbybelieving.org/.
Denim Day is April 25th. Wear your jeans or go full JT/Britney circa 2001 with a Canadian tuxedo to support survivors.
In addition to bringing Tag #30DaysOfSAAM and @NSVRC to participate all month long. A few we look forward to joining:
- 4/11: “Teal Ribbon”
- 4/12: “My Inspiration”
- 4/18: “How I Challenge Rape Culture” –> The next LASKI Live will take place 4/18 at 6:30pm MST (8:30EST). This will be a SAAM-themed event you won’t want to miss. Tune in on LASKI’s Facebook Page!
- Take a look at the full month’s themes here: https://www.nsvrc.org/30daysofsaam-instagram-contest
- K&K discuss libel and why we have to say the word “alleged” in media reports. It really isn’t as bad as you may think.
The next LASKI Live will take place 4/18 at 6:30 pm MST (8:30 EST). This will be a SAAM-themed event you won’t want to miss. Tune in on LASKI’s Facebook Page.
