May 15-20 is Sexual Violence Awareness Week (SVAW) in Saskatchewan. SVAW is dedicated to raising public awareness on issues of sexual violence in Saskatchewan through a variety of educational resources and events, aiming to change attitudes and conversations around sexual violence. Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan’s theme for SVAW 2023 is “The Power of Collaboration: Creating Safe Communities,” highlighting the importance of mutual and community support, and how we all contribute to a safe and supportive community. The CTRC has collected some resources and events to support you in shifting the conversation.
Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan is offering a virtual event series this week that are free to attend.
Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan also offers a variety of resources about sexual violence in Saskatchewan. One we recommend is the Saskatchewan Sexual Violence Education initiative Learning is Healing, a report that provides a detailed look into the reality, myths, prevalence, and issues surrounding sexual violence throughout Saskatchewan. You can find the executive summary here and the extensive report here.
In 2021, the CTRC had the privilege of collaborating with two keynote speakers, Dr. Lori Haskell and Dr. Jennifer Mullan, at the From Awareness to Action: Supporting Systemic Responses to Sexual Violence conference we held partnered with the Regina Sexual Assault Centre. We would highly recommend seeking out their work.
The Regina Sexual Assault Centre and the Saskatoon Sexual Assault & Information Centre both offer a variety of resources focused on providing general educational resources for all, as well as information and services specific to their respective areas.
Little Warriors is an organization dedicated to raising awareness about child sexual violence, offering free resources, events, and programs.
