Did you know that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)? SAAM is a time to not only honor the experiences of survivors, but to spread awareness about how we can all help to end sexual violence in our communities. All month long, SASSMM will be hosting live events on our Facebook and Instagram! Come join us as our advocates discuss boundaries, sexuality, and more! We'll be chatting, making bagels, cooking soup, and crafting along the way.
April 5th, 6:30-7:30pm: Ask an Advocate
What does an advocate do? Why does someone become an advocate? What does being an advocate look like in the rural mid coast? Sara, our Rural Advocate, will be interviewing August Sender, who has 8+ years of advocacy experience, about what advocacy means to them and what they do at SASSMM. The floor will be open to your questions!
April 14th, 6:30-7:30pm: Maine Family Planning and SASSMM: An Open Conversation
Join us for a discussion about navigating sex, sexuality, and sexual health during a pandemic. Maddy, MFP’s Prevention Coordinator and Elise, SASSMM’s Community Outreach Advocate will talk about consent, boundaries, trauma, and more! Bring your current crafting project and let’s get to chatting!
April 21st 6:30-7:30pm: Bagels and Boundaries
Join two SASSMM educators, Elise and Sam as they make bagels from scratch and discuss boundaries! This will be as interactive as possible, so please come with questions or just observe!
April 28th, 6:30-7:30pm: Soup and Sexuality
How do people experience and express sexuality, and why is it so different? Does sexuality define us, or does culture define sexuality? Join SASSMM educators Kendra and Sam as they make minestrone soup and talk about sexuality!
These events will all be live on our Facebook and Instagram!
