Our community says NO MÁS
The NO MÁS campaign includes a variety of tools that open for use and distribution.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM)
Check back each week for more information and materials to use for your communications. Contact us with any questions at email@example.com.
Week 1: Social media toolkit
Don’t concentrate on “disasters” about sex (sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies, or violence). Start a conversation by staying positive. #SAAM
Week 2: Social media toolkit
When babies discover their bodies, they also learn what feels good. We need to remember to take off the “adult glasses” and not overreact to children’s early genital exploration. #SAAM
Conversations with your children that combine responsibility, healthy decision-making, and values with the positive and pleasurable aspects of developing relationships will support their maturation and healthy sexual development. #SAAM
Using proper terminology helps do away with the idea that our bodies and sexuality are shameful, embarrassing, or bad. #SAAMWeek
Week 3: Social media toolkit
The video included in this week’s toolkit encourages parents to check in with your older children. You can reassure young people experiencing dramatic changes by letting them know these changes are normal. #SAAM
If the child is touching his or her genitals in public, make sure your child is aware of the behavior, help them identify “public” and “private” spaces. #SAAM
Talk to all young people about the range of subjects included in sexual health #SAAM
Talk about abstinence AND safer sex #SAAM
It’s possible to teach even young children about consent. Doing so not only reinforces your messages, it will help them become young people who value and practice consensual sexual relations. #SAAM
To have honest and insightful conversations with your children about healthy sexuality, first educate yourself so you can answer appropriately the inevitable string of questions they will have. #SAAM
