Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)


Only Yes Means Yes

Our vision at SASS is to achieve a community free of sexual trauma. To do this, we need to educate Tasmanians – and this is what Sexual Assault Awareness Month, or SAAM is about!

SAAM runs right through April. It provides an opportunity for individuals and organisations to help increase public awareness about sexual harassment, assault and abuse.  By raising awareness and educating our community, including schools, workplaces, homes, social settings and online, we can all play our part in preventing sexual assault.

How can my workplace or social group get involved?

  • Wear Teal Tuesday on Tuesday 26 April is our main day of action. Dress up in a teal outfit, put on a teal ribbon, host a morning or afternoon tea in the office, at home, at a social club or even outside in the fresh air!  

  • Help spread the message that #OnlyYesMeansYes with one of our bumper stickers, hot off the press this month for SAAM and available with your Wear Teal Tuesday kits.

  • Join our Teaching Kids Consent online. If you're a parent or a career for children/teenagers, this is a workshop not to be missed, and because it's SAAM we are offering it for a $15 donation to our fundraising. Download the flier here, and make sure you book in via the link above to secure your spot.
