April SAAM Events

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and we are asking for your help!  Using our voices can have positive change in the way sexual violence is viewed in our world. There are little things each one of us can do in our daily lives to embrace our voice and create change…such as speaking up against gender biases, intervening when we see bullying and harassment, practicing respect and equality.  We each have a role to play in the prevention of sexual violence.  Embrace Your Voice.  Your Voice Has Power.

Heroes: Using Power for Purpose

Come join COMPASS at Rivercrest Farm as we unite to support survivors and learn to be superheroes in our community.  This open house event will offer lots of family fun: egg hunt, farm animals, games, crafts, and lots of information on wellness and safety.  Enjoy delicious cupcakes provided by Sugarfuse.  If you are hungry, stop by Big Zeke’s BBQ food truck.

This free event is fun for the entire family!
