As Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) April 2010 approaches, CALCASA wanted to take this opportunity to highlight some of the events that California Rape Crisis Centers have hosted during the month of April to raise awareness about sexual violence.  Every week we will be featuring a new Rape Crisis Center’s SAAM events in order to highlight what events are taking place throughout the State during SAAM.  It is also an opportunity for Rape Crisis Centers to share ideas and suggestions for SAAM events as well as the resources used or needed to put the event together.
This week we are excited to highlight Community Solutions in Morgan Hill, CA. Community Solutions offers supportive services to survivors of sexual and domestic violence to residents of South County, which include South Santa Clara County and San Benito County.  Emma Lucas, Debbie Ruiz and Louisa Velazquez share some of the events that Community Solutions hosted during SAAM 2009 and will be hosting for SAAM 2010:
