Sexual Assault Awareness Month Proclomation Day

April 1 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

We have asked the city of Montrose to declare the First Tuesday of April ( Sexual Assault Awareness Month), please read below for details-

Proclamation: Day of Awareness for Sexual Assault and Child Abuse

We,  Faultless Inc., Dolphin House Advocacy Center, MMH Sexual Assault Reactive Team, and the 7th Judicial District Attorney’s Office formerly request  that the first Tuesday of April shall be recognized as the “Day of Awareness for Sexual Assault and Child Abuse.” This day shall serve as an annual reminder to promote awareness, education, and action against sexual assault and child abuse.

Unfortunately, sexual assault and child abuse are abhorrent acts that inflict severe physical, emotional, and psychological harm upon victims, causing immeasurable suffering and hindering their ability to lead fulfilling lives and we believe that proclaiming the first Tuesday of April provides an opportunity to shed light on the pervasive issues of sexual assault and child abuse, promoting awareness, education, prevention, and support for survivors. We believe it is imperative to create a society that prioritizes the safety, well-being, and empowerment of individuals of all ages, while fostering an environment where victims are heard, believed, and supported.

By raising awareness about sexual assault and child abuse on the second Tuesday of April serves to challenge societal norms, dismantle harmful stereotypes, and encourage conversations that promote healing, justice, and prevention.

By dedicating a specific day to this cause, we aim to rally individuals, our community, organizations, and governments to unite in their efforts to combat sexual assault and child abuse, working towards a future where every individual is treated with dignity, respect, and compassion. It is also essential to strengthen support systems, enhance victim services, and improve the legal framework to ensure that survivors receive the justice they deserve and that perpetrators are held accountable for their actions.
