Video Added: Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Just because you’re working remotely doesn’t mean you cannot show off your teal attire in support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The Center for Advocacy, Resources and Education, or CARE, invites students, staff and faculty to participate in Wear Teal Day, Tuesday (April 6), wherever they are — and post photos to social media using the hashtag #ucdsaam2021. Also: Tag @ucdcare to be included in a CARE compilation of social media posts that people share through the month.

Teal is the official color of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, observed each April. CARE is promoting Wear Teal Day and Denim Day, and has organized several other activities, including a discussion with the authors of Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power and Assault on Campus.

Social media posts will be displayed starting Thursday (April 1) in a virtual space CARE is creating for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Look for the link here.
