Mayor declares April Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Shoreline Mayor Will Hall, on behalf of the City Council, has proclaimed the month of April Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual Assault Awareness Month calls attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts everyone. While anyone can be a victim of sexual assault, women, children, and marginalized populations are more frequently victimized than others.
We must work together to educate our community about sexual violence prevention, supporting survivors, and speaking out against harmful attitudes and actions. Prevention is possible when everyone gets involved. The first step is increasing education, awareness, and community involvement. It is time for all of us to take action to create a safer environment for all.
The City of Shoreline joins advocates and communities across the country in taking action to prevent sexual violence. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and each day of the year is an opportunity to create change for the future.
