April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we at STER are committed to fighting sexual violence.
SAAM is an annual campaign, led by the National Sexual Violence Resource Centre (NSVRC) and other stakeholders in bringing attention to sexual assault and educate the general public and individuals on methods to take to avoid and prevent sexual violence. The theme for this year is ‘I ASK’. This theme is set to reemphasize the need for consent in all sexually related activities.
In times like this, it has become necessary and of utmost importance for us at STER to make sure people stay protected and safe from all forms of sexual assaults. This is why it has become our agenda to carry out our form of activism virtually.
Hence, we call for performers (poets, writers, storytellers etc) to come to share their original pieces of art on our Instagram (IG) Live which would take place by 2 pm on April 25th, 2020. Our IG handle is (@standtoendrape) and if you are interested in performing, please fill out the form below http://bit.ly/STEROpenMic2020
Remember that ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’ – John F Kennedy. So, lets put our voices together and Stand to End Rape.
