January is Sexual Assault Awareness Month at UBC!

Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) is a UBC community initiative that was developed to help put an end to sexual violence and make our campus safer for everyone! We want to engage and inform the UBC community to spread awareness about this important issue. Our focus is a positive one – we intend to inspire people to realize that stopping sexual assault is everyone’s responsibility, and that as friends and bystanders, there are important and concrete actions we can all take to raise awareness and stop violence. For more information please visit our website at http://blogs.ubc.ca/saam or email us at sa.awareness@ubc.ca.
