Every local rape crisis center will hold events during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. You can march, walk a mile, make T-shirts, enjoy a band, stand silently and participate in many other activities. Please contact a local rape crisis center to see what might be taking place in your community.
Working aggressively to combat rape and sexual assault in all settings has been a priority for this administration. As part of these continued efforts and building on the President’s call to action in 2010, the President and Vice President are convening a meeting today, Jan. 22, of the White House Council on Women and Girls at the Cabinet level along with the council representatives from each agency in the East Room of the White House to examine the progress that has been made and to renew a call to root out abuse wherever it exists and further protect Americans from rape and sexual assault.
