Sexual Assault Prevention and Advocacy (SAPA)

 

Sexual Assault Prevention & Advocacy (SAPA) at UM-Flint has two purposes: First, to support survivors of sexual assault; Second, to promote a culture change to prevent sexual assault on campus and in the Flint community. Housed within the Women's Educational Center, SAPA provides advocacy and resources for survivors, prevention education for students, and platforms for all students to engage in dialogue and activism with each other around issues of sexual violence.

Below are resources and information available through the WEC, UM-Flint, the local community, and the web. This information is also available in our full resource guide, which you can download here
