Since April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month – or if you take a page out of SAFER’s book it is Sexual Assault ACTIVISM Month – there are plenty of events, gatherings and benefits to raise awareness, honor survivors and engage in discussions around prevention. One quick way to take action is to support New Yorkers United Against Sexual Violence, by signing this petition to ask the New York City Council to reinstate funding for anti-sexual violence programming for the 2012 budget. (Much thanks to fellow For the Birds member, Lauren Denitzio, for designing the lovely logo!)
