2016 Photos of Event

In the United States April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it.

Sexual Assault can happen to anyone, anywhere. It is not biased by gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other combination thereof. It about power.

Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow hosts a number of events throughout the month of April in support of SAAM. Please check back soon for our calendar of events and thank you for your support all year long!
