April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

SAAM 2021 Calendar of Events

Spring Update: 2021 Virtual Office Hours resume on January 19th. Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10am-noon. Drop by for 5 minutes or an hour—to meet with an advocate about what's going on with you, how to support a friend who may be a survivor, see what services are available to survivors on and off-campus, or ask a question we may know the answer to. As a reminder, meeting with an advocate does NOT obligate you to report to the school or to the police. Zoom ID: 9876777146 Password: SA2020. If you have issues logging on, email survivoradvocacy@arizona.edu

 The Survivor Advocacy program will continue to offer all advocacy services remotely for Spring 2021. 

We are dedicated to the health and safety of all in our community especially the immuno-compromised, our elders, and those who are not given equitable access to healthcare, housing, food, and sanitation. Your safety and well-being are still (and will continue to be) our top priority. Because of this, we will no longer hold in-person meetings or office hours for walk-in appointments. 

Our program continues to be a resource for students impacted by sexual and gender-based violence, and we are still in operation Monday- Friday 9am to 5pm.

We can set up a Skype meeting or have a phone call. Email us at survivoradvocacy@arizona.edu or fill out the referral form to talk to a confidential survivor advocate.
