Stand With The College of Health Professions Against Sexual Assault

Published Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Stand with US! The College of Health Professions Supports Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Sexual assault is a serious and widespread problem.

Sexual violence is any type of unwanted sexual contact. This can include words and actions of a sexual nature against a person’s will and without their consent.

The good news is that prevention is possible and it’s happening.

By promoting safe behaviors, thoughtful policies and healthy relationships, we can create safe and equitable communities where every person is treated with respect.

Sexual violence prevention requires many voices and roles.

We’re calling on individuals, communities and the private sector to be a part of the solution by taking action during and beyond SAAM to create the cultural shift necessary to eliminate sexual violence once and for all.

Join us for the Candlelight Vigil on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. Located at Coppin State University HHSB Room 103, Baltimore, MD 21216. Form more information contact Mrs. Ericka Smith, Assistant Professor in Nursing at 410-951-4216 or email her at or Ms. Stacey Wood, Assistant Professor in Nursing, at 410-951-2620 or email her at
