About #SAAM

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM).  Every year, FORGE (a national transgender anti-violence organization), focuses our social media efforts on raising public awareness about sexual violence specific to transgender, gender-diverse, and non-binary individuals, loved ones, and communities.

We know that:

  • Victim service providers benefit from trans-specific information, training, and guidance.
  • Trans and non-binary survivors and loved ones feel heard, validated, and supported when information about sexual violence is trans-specific.

Together, with increased knowledge and support, we can collectively make a difference in lowering rates of sexual violence and helping trans survivors access the respectful healing services they need and deserve


About the Contest

Last October 2017, the #MeToo movement – a movement raising awareness of sexual harassment, misconduct, abuse, and assault – went viral and has continued to play a prominent role in shaping how our culture is recognizing and addressing sexual violence. The #MeToo movement has remained solely focused on women, leaving the majority of trans and non-binary survivors feeling erased from this powerful movement that has led to so many female survivors feeling validation and healing.

For #SAAM 2018, we are inviting artists to design and submit a coloring book style image around the concept of #TransToo. The image can be as simple or as intricate as you like. Designs should be black and white, and scalable so they can be printed on 8.5 X 11” paper. During April, people will be invited to color the winning design and share their resulting artwork as part of FORGE’s #SAAM #TransToo social media campaign.

The #TransToo coloring page contest is open to everyone.  We welcome survivors, loved ones, providers, and allies to submit a design. We encourage artists to be creative. #TransToo can mean many different things to different people. Use your imagination and let the world know that sexual violence affects #Trans(people)Too!
