Sexual Assault Awareness month occurs in April nationally and within the Department of Defense. The month is designated as an extension of a variety of yearly events to further raise awareness, prevent and eliminate sexual assault through public education.

This year's theme "Hurts One. Affects All," recognizes the impact on total force personnel and mission readiness, encourages our personnel to continue to take care of each through proactive bystander intervention.

The slogan "Don't Standby... Stand Up and Act" helps to prevent behaviors that are contrary to our culture, our core values and our ability to support not only our joint mission, each other as well.
