Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Personalized Cause

sexual-assault-awareness-month.png

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).

Sexual violence is a very serious public health problem that affects millions of women and men.

In the United States, 1 in 5 women have experienced completed or attempted rape, and about 1 in 15 men have been made to penetrate someone in their lifetime. Most victims first experienced sexual violence before age 25.

Statistics underestimate the problem because many victims do not tell the police, family, or friends about the violence.

Sexual violence is any sexual activity where consent is not freely given. This includes completed or attempted sex acts that are against the victim's will or involve a victim who is unable to consent.

Sexual violence impacts health in many ways and can lead to long-term physical and mental health problems. For example, victims may experience chronic pain, headaches, and sexually transmitted diseases. They are often fearful or anxious and may have problems trusting others. Anger and stress can lead to eating disorders, depression, and even suicidal thoughts.

If you are or someone you know is a victim of sexual violence: Contact the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE. Help is free, confidential, and available 24/7.

Autism Awareness Month

Personalized Cause

April is Autism Awareness Month!

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate, and interact with others. ASD is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a “spectrum condition” that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and early diagnosis/intervention and access to appropriate services/supports lead to significantly improved outcomes.

Some of the behaviors associated with autism include delayed learning of language; difficulty making eye contact or holding a conversation; difficulty with executive functioning, which relates to reasoning and planning; narrow, intense interests; poor motor skills’ and sensory sensitivities. Again, a person on the spectrum might follow many of these behaviors or just a few, or many others besides. The diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder is applied based on analysis of all behaviors and their severity.

In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued their ADDM autism prevalence report. The report concluded that the prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 68 births in the United States – nearly twice as great as the 2004 rate of 1 in 125 – and almost 1 in 54 boys.

HERE ARE SOME SIGNS TO LOOK FOR IN THE CHILDREN IN YOUR LIFE:
•Lack of or delay in spoken language
•Repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects)
•Little or no eye contact
•Lack of interest in peer relationships
•Lack of spontaneous or make-believe play
•Persistent fixation on parts of objects

Equal Pay Day

Personalized Cause

Today is Equal Pay Day,

Equal Pay Day is a symbolic day for advocates in the U.S. to show support for women in the workforce and draw attention to the gender pay gap.

Here's what you need to know about Equal Pay Day:

What Is Equal Pay Day?

Equal Pay Day represents how far into the year women must work in order to earn what men earned the year before. It usually falls on a Tuesday, to show how far into the next work week women must work to match the pay earned by men, says the National Committee on Pay Equity.

Women overall earned about 82% of the full-time weekly pay check of a man, according to IWPR. But black women's earnings were just 68% compared to white men and Hispanic women's were 62%. The NCPE says the event started in 1996 “as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages.” The goal is not only to seek legislation to narrow the pay gap between men and women, but also for people of color.

Endometriosis Awareness Month

Personalized Cause

endometriosis-awareness-month.png

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month!

Endometriosis is a fertility health issue that happens when cells or tissues similar to the tissues that form the uterine lining (the endometrium) relocate and begin to grow outside the uterus. Endometriosis can grow in and on the organs of the pelvic cavity – ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowel, etc. Some women experience endometriosis so severely that it is found on other organs throughout the body (although this is rare). So far, neither a cause nor a cure has been found.

"Endometriosis can have a devastating effect on quality of life due to its very painful symptoms; it is the biggest cause of infertility in women, and carries a huge personal and societal cost! It is time to raise awareness of a disease that affects women – and their families – in their most (re)productive years!” ~Endometriosis.org
