SEXUAL VIOLENCE AWARENESS WEEK
Sexual Violence Awareness Week takes place during the third week of September each year. Community groups and members across the province host events and awareness campaigns during this week to provide information and education to the public around the issue of sexual violence.
TAKE BACK THE NIGHT
As part of Sexual Violence Awareness Week, the NL Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre hosts the St. John’s Take Back the Night March on the 3rd Friday of September. The march is an organized public protest. It serves as a means for individuals to unite and voice the need to end sexual violence, fear, and victim-blaming.
RECONNECTING BODY & MIND
Reconnecting Body and Mind is a free weekly skill-building and healthy living peer support group for people impacted by sexual violence. Sessions may include movement classes, nature walks, art, and nutritious cooking classes. Each week, participants will leave the workshop with a new skill and/or a physical gift that they can take with them. Click here to learn more about Reconnecting Body & Mind.
