April 2017: Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Each April we take time to raise awareness about sexual assault.

At Stronger Than Espresso, we define sexual assault as: Any action, innuendo, or behavior that is forced or coerced without the continual and explicit consent of the person involved.

When consent is disregarded in sexual assault, this means a person loses the ability to control what happens next. They have no say in what is happening to their body and the sexual act happens to them, they are not participating in it.

There are many ways you can be involved and show your support this April.
