Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.  The Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family is excited to assist and support ASU and Empact for their Tack Back The Night Event on April 16, 2016 on the ASU Tempe Campus Hayden Lawn on April 14th

Take Back the Night is an international event and non-profit organization with the mission of ending sexual, relationship, and domestic violence in all forms. Hundreds of events are held in over 30 countries annually. Events often include marches, rallies and vigils intended as a protest and direct action against rape and other forms of sexual, relationship, and domestic violence. In 2001, a group of women who had participated in the earliest Take Back the Night marches, came together to form the Take Back the Night Foundation in support of the events throughout the United States and the world.
