Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign

teal-sand

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Sexual violence is any sexual activity where consent is not obtained or not freely given. It impacts every community and affects people of all genders, sexual orientations, and ages.

  • Every 68 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted.
  • Every 9 minutes, that victim is a child.
  • Only 25 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison.
  • 59% of perpetrators are acquaintances of the victim, 34% are family members, and only 7% are strangers.
  • During the 2022-2023 fiscal year, PREVAIL served 461 victims of sexual assault and 273 family members of a victim.

This year, we are asking the community to help us raise awareness in a few ways:

Denim Day, April 24th

PREVAIL is inviting the community to join in this fundraising opportunity. Everyone is encouraged to wear denim on April 24th and donate $5 or wear ripped jeans and donate $10.  All donations made to PREVAIL will be directed to provide services to individuals impacted by sexual violence.  To join this campaign and share your support please Donate Here

Join Teal Day on April 2nd - Kick off event at Michael's Pizza

Please join us to kick off our Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign at Michael's Pizza (2300 W. Alpine Ave., Stockton, CA); our team will be there from 12:00 to 4:00 PM! Michael's Pizza will be donating a percentage of their sales during this event to support services for victims of sexual assault. Wear teal, the color of sexual violence prevention. Whether it’s a ribbon, shirt, or accessory, show your support by sharing your teal look and tag PREVAIL on your social media.

Teal Sand Project

PREVAIL is inviting authorities, organizations, and partner agencies to bring awareness and open dialogues by displaying our Teal Sand Project! PREVAIL provides the sand, posters, and our team joins each partner to fill the cracks or grout in the sidewalk, main entrance, or courtyard at the various locations symbolizing the community coming together to fill the gaps for victims of sexual assault.  This campaign, and our partners, will be highlighted through the month of April in our social media.  Please note that the sand is completely safe and washable.

Teal Sand Invite

We had some agencies asking us last year if there was a cost to host the Teal Sand Project or a way to support our efforts, even though there is no cost and we are honored with your partnership and support, we welcome any contributions.
