The goal of this program is to reduce the risk of violence against women on our campus.

University Medical School, School of Allied Health Professions, School of Graduate Studies

The LSU Health Shreveport SAVE Program is a student Sexual Assault and Violence Education Program that began in the Fall of 2011. All new, incoming students, both male and female, will annually attend the SAVE Program training during their first week of Campus Orientation. Under this program an educational and prevention curriculum was developed and implemented that specifically addresses domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking against women enrolled at LSU Health Shreveport.

Mission: The mission of the SAVE Program is tri-fold. The University is committed to the development and implementation of a sexual assault and violence awareness program to educate all students about the warning signs and potential risks of becoming a victim, how to prevent / eliminate the threat of violence and how to empower women to regain control of their lives in the event they become a victim.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2020 begins on October 1. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, victims of abuse are more isolated than ever before. In an effort to continue reaching others and bring awareness to the seriousness and prevalence of Domestic Violence, we will be sharing the No More #ListeningFromHome message, activating bystanders, and sharing information that can help those who are experiencing violence during this unprecedented crisis.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month! Sexual violence is a public health issue that affects everyone whether you are the victim, family member, friend or a co-worker, etc. It is one of the least talked about subjects and when it is discussed it makes people uncomfortable. Because of this many times sexual violence goes unmentioned and the victim continues to suffer in silence. According to statistics, approximately 1 in 5 American women have been raped at some time in their lives and about 1 in 71 American men are raped. And approximately 1 in 2 American women and 1 in 5 men have experienced other forms of sexual violence, which which could include rape, attempted rape, coersion or other unwanted sexual contact. If you or someone you know needs help, please reach out to the SAVE office at [email protected].

During Sexual Assault Awareness Month the LSU Health Shreveport campus participates in Denim Day, an annual sexual assault awareness campaign that stimulates conversations about about sexual assault, victim blaming and shaming and encourages people to step up and speak out. The 21st celebration of Denim Day 2020 is being recognized on Wednesday, April 29. Even though we are not on campus and our world has become one of virtual meetings and online education modules due to COVID19, we are asking everyone to take a picture of themselves wearing their jeans and post it to the SAVE page with #DenimDay2020. For those of you that are not familiar with Denim Day, here is a brief history.

Denim Day grew out of a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans. An 18-year old girl went for a driving lesson with a 45-year old driving instructor. Instead of a driving lesson, he took her to an isolated road and raped her. She reported the incident to her parents and with their support she pressed charges. The driving instructor was arrested and prosecuted, convicted of rape and sentenced to jail. However, he appealed the sentence and the case goes to the Italian Supreme Court where the case against the driving instructor is overturned, dismissed, and the perpetrator released. In a statement by the Chief Judge, he argued, “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.” The women in the Italian Parliament became enraged by this reversal! As a result, they formed a protest by wearing jeans to work. The California Senate and Assembly picked up on this movement and rallied together to do the same. As word spread of this miscarriage of justice it attracted the attention of people from around the world who also joined in the movement. From this, wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes and myths surrounding sexual assault. Peace Over Violence, a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles, led by Patti Giggans, organized the country’s first Denim Day event in 1999. Under POV’s leadership, Denim Day LA & USA has grown into a national movement.

Recognizing Sexual Assault Awareness Month by taking a look back at some of the advocates that work to provide support for survivors. Sexual violence is one of the most difficult issues for victims to talk about. Yet without talking about it nothing will change. This month is all about opening dialogues and reminding everyone that it is NEVER the victim's fault.

If you or someone you know have been or are currently being abused please reach out to the SAVE office at [email protected]. Help is available.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

[04/01/20]   April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). This is the 19th anniversary of recognizing SAAM and the theme is “I Ask”. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual harassment, assault, and abuse and educate communities on how to prevent it.

Not only are organizations and individuals across the country and around the world working to promote awareness, more importantly they are working on prevention. Consent must be communicated in a clear and concrete way to end sexual misconduct including assault, abuse and harassment. Communication and clear consent for sexual activity should be considered a normal part of healthy relationships.

Typically there are many activities and events held on campuses and throughout communities to highlight SAAM. However, due to the COVID19 pandemic, these activities and events have been cancelled. But there are many resources available on-line for anyone that wants or needs more information either for themselves or for someone they know. And even though we are all sheltering at home right now you can still show you support by wearing teal. It could be a t-shirt, a hat, a ribbon or any other piece of apparel that will remind you of the mission of SAAM. And don't forget to take a selfie and post on your FB page with #teal #IASK #SAAM

January is National Stalking Awareness Month. If you want more information about this crime, contact the SAVE office at 813-7283 or [email protected].

Stalking — it can be one of the most difficult abuse tactics to safety plan around, especially when police involvement and protective orders are either not possible or not helpful in stopping the abuse.

It’s not only underreported, but the laws surrounding stalking can differ from state to state. Considering how dangerous stalking is, it is important to be informed and to know what your safety planning options are.

To start, what is stalking, and how can you know if you are being stalked? Stalking is generally understood to be a pattern of behavior directed at a specific person, with the intention to intimidate and frighten the victim.

If you believe you are experiencing stalking, go to thehotline.org to read about how you can safety plan, or contact one of our Advocates who are available 24/7/365 by call 1-800-799-SAFE or 1-800-787-3224 TTY or chat online at thehotline.org.
