As April unfolds, Hill AFB stands united in its commitment to raise awareness and prevent sexual assault.

The theme for this year’s Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) is “Step Forward. Prevent. Report. Advocate.” 

It’s a powerful call to action, urging us all to make a difference by promoting prevention, encouraging reporting, and advocating for a safer community within the Department of Defense.

If you missed this month’s earlier events, such as Paint the Town Teal and the SAAPM breakfast and proclamation signing, mark your calendars for these upcoming events:

SAAPM social media booth: The SAPR office will have a free photo station set up at various location on the base for participants to post on Facebook and Instagram. Through the third week of April, the booth is located at building 430 75th FSS/Customer Service. The last week, it will be at The Landing.

Denim Day (April 24): Wear denim to challenge misconceptions surrounding sexual violence. Learn more at Denim Day’s official website.
