Lambda Theta Alpha will once again partner with Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. to launch a national campaign for Sexual Assault Awareness during the month of April. Sexual Assault Awareness Month, calls attention to the widespread impact sexual assault has to every person in our community. The theme of this year’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign is, “Engaging New Voices.” The campaign calls on new partners and community members to help expand sexual assault prevention efforts and ensure the next generation fosters attitudes that promote healthy relationships, equality and respect.

The National Sexual Violence Resource Center is a great place to find resources to help your chapter with event planning, media campaigns, and other forms of educational platforms to engage members of your campuses/communities in the conversation around how to prevent sexual assault. For more information, please visit: http://www.nsvrc.org/saam/sexual-assault-awareness-month

For this month, we are asking our members to help spread the word through our social media campaign by using the twibbon created for profile pictures. Please click on the link: https://twibbon.com/Support/sexual-assault-awareness-16 and post on your Twitter and/or Facebook to encourage other members to do the same.

Additionally, we are asking that if your Chapter is planning or participating in an event related to Sexual Assault Awareness Month, that you include the Sorority hashtag, #LTAUnited so we can see the great work you are doing locally to raise awareness!

This month will include educational resources on the topic of Sexual Assault on how to engage in prevention, and what to do should someone you know has been impacted. We are excited about this partnership and hope that you will be United against sexual assault by “Engaging New Voices” in this important conversation!
