The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it. The 2018 theme of SAAM is “Embrace Your Voice” to inform individuals on how they can use their words to promote safety, respect, and equality to stop sexual violence before it happens.
Tulane campus partners and student organizations are hosting a variety of events throughout the month in support of this effort.
Not Your Average Sex Talk with Lex Loro and Emmett Patterson
6:30pm — 8:30pm
LBC, Qatar Ballroom
Not Your Average Sex Talk (NYAST) is a peer-to-peer health advocacy network that uses a social justice framework to discuss sex and intimacy in ways that are often neglected in traditional sex education settings. Understanding that there is no universal, comprehensive sex ed. curriculum, NYAST aims to: disperse specific and medically-accurate sexual health information, facilitate discussions beyond heteronormative sexual intercourse, and address how homo/bi/transphobia, ableism, and racism intertwine with attraction and intimacy. Lex and Emmett’s community-driven approach to youth sexual education aims to empower a new generation of leaders to take control of their health and the health of their communities.
Postcards from Over the Edge
Rogers Memorial Chapel
Postcards from Over the Edge is an original theatrical work that illustrates the historical real-life struggles related to the sale of sex in Louisiana. This staged reading, which begins in pre-Storyville, circa 1890, and concludes in contemporary times explores how this criminalization disproportionately impacts the LBGTQ community and people of color. Sponsored by Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program, Center for Academic Equity, Office of Multicultural Affairs, Gender Exploration Society, Queer Student Alliance, and the Gender & Sexuality Advisory Council.

Hers, Theirs, Ours
Hers, Theirs, Ours is Tulane University's fully original production that replaced the Vagina Monologues in 2016! We hope to create conversation about what it means to experience gender-based violence as women and non-binary & gender non-conforming folks, to open up this conversation to those who have been denied access to the Vagina Monologues community on basis of gender, and to acknowledge that all experiences of gendered oppression cannot and should not be homogenized across class, race, ability, and various other identities.
Show your support for survivors of sexual assault by wearing jeans on this day to call for an end to myths surrounding survivors of sexual violence.
One Wave Workshops
Ongoing throughout the month of April, sign up for a One Wave bystander intervention training.
One Wave workshops are 1-hour peer-led conversations that provide foundational knowledge and skills on how each of us can help keep our peers and communities safe from sexual violence. After this training you will be able to recognize potential moments of harm, acknowledge barriers that stop us from acting, and identify realistic ways to intervene.
