2009 Campaign Materials
"Our Strength is for Defending"
The 2009 SAAM theme, Our Strength is for Defending: Readiness=Respect focuses on the ability of every Service member to prevent sexual assault by taking an active role in looking out for the welfare of friends and co-workers. As leaders in the field, Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs), Victim Advocates (VAs) and commanders have the ability to educate and to encourage our Service members to be ready and act in situations where people may be in jeopardy. This is especially important when alcohol is involved. Creating an environment of mutual respect and assistance is key to prevention. As you plan your campaign, try to use this theme to complement your activities.
