Empower Yolo Events

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month & Child Abuse Prevention Month:

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and Child Abuse Prevention Month. A year has passed since COVID-19 forced Yolo County and most of the nation into quarantine. Throughout that time, Empower Yolo continued to support survivors of sexual assault amidst the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. Empower Yolo modified its services to better support sexual assault survivors. As we shift from the darkness of the pandemic into the light, be mindful that many survivors of sexual abuse need additional support.
Empower Yolo’s Concerned Advocates Responding to Emergencies (CARE) advocates are here to support and empower sexual assault and human trafficking survivors by providing accompaniment and advocacy during law enforcement investigations. Phone and video services are also available for therapy and case management. If you need support call the 24-hour crisis line at: (530) 662-1133.
For SAAM 2021 we are prepared for a month of action to raise awareness about the issues, support survivors of abuse, and help prevent sexual violence. Join Empower Yolo this month along with our sponsors, “Friends of Empower Yolo”, supporters, survivors and allies to get involved during SAAM. See our awareness month campaign, follow our efforts for the month, join us for one of our events, and participate in our weekly Instagram challenge. A printable version of the campaign can be found at: 2021 SAAM Calendar of Events.
