YWCA of Richmond is taking a stand this April with a variety of free educational outreach activities & a robust social media advocacy campaign for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

This year, we’re adopting a different focus of violence prevention for each week of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, with themed workshops, training, outreach events, informative blog articles and more.

We call this campaign YWCAnprevent, but YOUcanprevent, too! We hope you’ll join us in spreading awareness of resources for survivors and ways you can stand up to sexual assault in our community.

Empowerment Through Education Series

YWCA of Richmond is presenting a free educational workshop series with topics ranging from “Trauma and the Brain” to “Teaching Consent Early and Often.”

Visit our site calendar for a listing of our upcoming events this April. All Sexual Assault Awareness Month events are free, but require registration, which can be done through our secure eventbrite page.
