Scott R. Van Buskirk, chief of naval personnel and director of the Navy's SAAM 2012 initiative. "The weekly themes will underscore varying aspects of sexual assault and the Navy's efforts to raise awareness in order to eliminate this crime."
The four weekly themes are: "Hurts One," "Affects All," "Prevention is Everyone's Duty," and "We Will Not Tolerate Sexual Assault."
"Our goal is to foster a command climate in which reporting assault is embraced and encouraged while providing support to victims," said Van Buskirk.
All units are encouraged to participate and promote SAAM events in addition to the two-hour stand down in April, said Van Buskirk.
"Collectively, we can make a difference in preventing sexual assault by engaging all of our people in a meaningful manner to raise awareness to change behavior," said Van Buskirk.
