April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month. I believe everyone deserves to grow and live in safe and healthy environments, whether at home, school, work or anywhere else in our world. I'm a loved one of a survivor and I share our story here:

Music + Movement :: April - Awareness & Action Against Abuse
This is why I'll be participating in SAAM and inviting you all to greater awareness and action during the month of April.
This is not a women's issue. It's a human issue and it's everybody's business.
I'll be playing music at the Mall of America Rotunda on Saturday, April 28th, 2012, 1:30pm, to stand with the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Demand the Change for Children. This will be a family friendly event that will include the Women's Drum Center, The Smooch! Project and youthrive! Check out the full program, lineup and details here!
Join us if you're in the Twin Cities. If you're elsewhere in the country and the world, check out the movement and see how you can be involved!
I also submitted my photo to the NOMORE.org gallery. You can too!
Follow me on twitter at @heatherlynmusic and check out my Lists. You can subscribe to the List entitled "End Sexual Violence" that follows over 70 individuals and organizations working to prevent and end domestic, dating and sexual violence. They are from all over the country and even beyond. They provide resources for survivors and loved ones and ways to team up with others dedicated to prevention.
Peace and all the best to you and yours!
