April is "SAAM" -- Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and a host of Pensacola-area officials drove that home on Thursday in downtown Pensacola.
They gathered in front of the fountain at the marina near Plaza de Luna. The water dyed teal green – the color of sexual assault awareness. Patrick Nichols from NAS Pensacola read the proclamation, prior to signing.
“Every year, too many women and too many men are sexually assaulted and abused,” read Nichols. “This is an affront to our basic decency and humanity, and it must end.”
