SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

TODAY'S FOCUS

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month: Army Sexual Assault Prevention, and Response Program and Resources


What leaders are saying:

"Sexual assault is contrary to Army values. There is no place in the Army for it. We train our Soldiers every year on sexual assault prevention and we reemphasize it in all of our professional education. Our SAPR Program is constantly looking for new and innovative techniques to address sexual assault prevention. This year we are incorporating a new peer involvement strategy that encourages peer intervention in addition to our other comprehensive approaches." Lt. Gen. Michael D. Rochelle, deputy chief of staff, Army G-1.

What is it?

The Army joins DOD and the other armed services in observing National Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

April brings an annual opportunity to focus awareness on sexual violence and its prevention and is a time to highlight the efforts of the Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) who provide intervention and prevention services while offering support to sexual assault survivors, victims and their Families.
