Deep in the heart of Texas, we always add our own little twist to Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month and 2016 is no different.  This time around, TAASA is asking Texans to use social media to #TurnTexasTeal.  In addition to participating in the national campaign, we ask that rape crisis centers, colleges and universities, schools, faith-based communities, and engaged Texans join in TAASA’s 2016 Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month initiative designed to raise awareness and promote a prevention-based actions across Texas.  The #TurnTexasTeal initiative will use social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Twibbon, and Instagram to populate social media with everything from survivor stories to calls to action.  The best part about #TurnTexasTeal is that the content will largely be generated and shared by people like you!

About Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month

Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month (SAAPM) takes place in April of each year.  During April, agencies across the country vamp up awareness and outreach efforts in their communities. A Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month proclamation is signed by the President of the United States along with Governors and Mayors across the country.

Although our work is year round, SAAPM allows for an amplified, unified message and focuses on the root causes of sexual violence and on the realities of rape in our communities. SAAPM materials and messaging are created by various national, state, and local organizations.
