Albuquerque Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#ABQSAAM2021) has officially begun! Today, on April 5th 2021, Albuquerque City Council will be signing an official Proclamation for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Campus will also begin displaying a SAAM banner over their footbridge the UNM Hospital, located near North Campus. The banner will be visible over Lomas Street, and will be on display thru the end of the month.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month is a National campaign designed to raise public awareness about sexual assault, as well as educate communities about its impact and prevention. It was created in 2001 by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, and is currently in its 20th year. As healthcare providers for the survivors of Albuquerque, we couldn't be happier to have a city so united in its efforts against sexual violence. We are excited to participate in #ABQSAAM2021, and are honored to be backed by a community that supports our patients unconditionally. Thank you UNMHSC and ABQ City Council!
