What is SAAM?

Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) is a month-long series of engagement opportunities hosted by the Sexual Violence Support & Prevention Office (SVSPO) in collaboration with SFU and FIC partners every January. The purpose of SAAM is to raise awareness about sexual violence and to empower SFU and FIC students, faculty, and staff to engage with this complex topic in meaningful ways.

SAAM is informed by four guiding principles. SAAM is:

  • Trauma-informed
  • Inclusive
  • Intersectional
  • Action-oriented
