Sexual Assault Awareness Week was proclaimed by the Government of Saskatchewan and by Saskatoon City Council, and will take place May 16th -20th, 2016.
SSAIC and our sister organizations across the province will be busy with events during the week.
In Saskatoon, we will be launching a social media campaign, picking up on the Government’s #whowillyouhelpSK promotion that launched in Fall 2015—keep an eye on our Twitter page (follow us @ssaic1) and our Facebook page on Monday, May 16th to see the photo gallery of local and provincial movers and shakers pledging to help end sexual violence in Saskatchewan.
At 7pm on Wednesday, May 18th, The Roxy will be showing The Hunting Ground, a documentary on campus sexual assault in the United States that was short-listed for the Oscar Documentary Feature category. Tickets are $10 at the door. A panel discussion featuring U of S Vice-Provost Dr. Patricia McDougall, a representative from the Saskatoon Police Service, and SSAIC’s Senior Client Worker Megan Sawyer will follow the film.
