Navy Announces Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Hurts One. Sexual assault victims are our Shipmates.
Affects All. Sexual assault impacts readiness and combat effectiveness.
Prevention is Everyone’s Duty. We must look out for our Shipmates and prevent harm.
We Will Not Tolerate Sexual Assault. Sexual assault is my problem, your problem, our problem.
Above are the themes that will be rolled out by the Department of Defense during April in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). U.S. Navy commands around the world will host mandatory education sessions to raise sexual assault awareness among Sailors. The Navy is working to prevent sexual assaults, to support sexual assault victims, and to hold offenders accountable.
