Each April, individuals and institutions come together to raise public awareness about sexual violence in all its forms and educate our communities about how to prevent it. We would like to invite you to join the Well for Health Promotion, the Title IX Office, and the All In Student Coalition to commemorate SAAM 2021! There are more details below on events happening around campus throughout the month. We also encourage you to explore Tulane's SAAM media kit for more information about Sexual Assault Awareness Month's history and other resources you can use to spread awareness throughout the month.
USG Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Committee presents this event is in collaboration with Kate Kushner, the Senior Sex Week Coordinator, and students-at-large Sofija Djordjevic and Kate Sonderegger. Gen-Z Gets Sex-y with Peggy Orenstein brings a nationally renowned author and speaker, Peggy Orenstein, to educate the Tulane community around sexual wellness. This event is an open discussion for all identities surrounding how college students navigate sex and porn ethically in the current era, which is a topic that has not yet been explored by current programming.
