Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Traveling Postcards

Registration: SAAM 2022 Traveling Postcards Registration

Dates of Event: April through June. You can register until June 1st!

Join the Outreach and Advocacy Project (OAP) in this craft activity which works to challenge domestic and sexual violence by creating and sharing love! Participants create their own homemade postcard that will be sent directly to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. How you create your postcard is completely up to you, however we ask that participants focus on healing sentiments and not share personal details of abuse in their postcard.

Anything can be used to create your postcard – newspaper, magazines, food boxes/containers, leafs, grass, flowers, stickers, old books, yarn – pretty much anything you can glue onto a piece of cardstock! You may also submit a digital design if you prefer. OAP will be providing the blank postcard, a return envelope, and return postage so that all you have to do is create using your brilliant personal touch! There will also be “craft kits” available for free, that include a pair of scissors, a glue stick, and assorted craft paper in case you do not have supplies at your disposal. Please register for this event so we are able to send the necessary supplies.
