April is Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about sexual assault and educate the community about how to prevent sexual violence.

 

The Air Force remains committed to eliminating sexual assault and this is reflected in the myriad initiatives, trainings, and process improvements surrounding prevention and reporting.

 

Here at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, we are committed to the prevention of sexual assault and interpersonal violence. The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) office works diligently with all leaders and supervisors to set command climates that are non-permissive of sexual assault, retaliation-free and encourage reporting.

 

The goal is to recognize that all people can play a part in sexual assault prevention and response. The Air Force’s stance on sexual assault and harassment is clear: it will not be tolerated.

 

No one person can combat sexual assault on their own; please contact Gloria Woody, 94th Airlift Wing sexual assault response coordinator, at 678-655-4301 or gloria.woody@us.af.mil with any questions, concerns or reports regarding sexual assaults.

 

All are encouraged to show their support to the SAPR Program by attending locally scheduled events during the 2018 Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM).

Please see your SARC or SAPR victim advocate for a list of Sexual Assault Awareness Prevention Month events in the area or to help organize an event.
