Sexual Assault Awareness Month – April 2011
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This month, we enter the third phase of our "I. A.M. Strong" campaign, which focuses our commitment to achieving cultural change to stop sexual assault. It is everyone's responsibility to "Intervene, Act and Motivate" others to prevent sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Phase three recognizes the principle that all Army leaders--Soldiers and Civilians--must play a proactive role in addressing negative behaviors and attitudes that are often precursors to sexual harassment or even assault. As leaders in today's Army, we must ensure that Soldiers--male or female--are not sexually harassed or sexually assaulted by fellow team members. This effort requires strong leadership, a health unit climate, adherence to our Army Values and respect for the bonds of trust we have forged with each other during 10 years of war.
We encourage you to get involved and take part in this year's Sexual Assault Awareness Month activities. Your continued leadership, dedication and support will ensure an Army culture free of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
