The Ohio National Guard Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (SAPR) program provides the tools and resources to prevent the occurrence of sexual assaults while also protecting the rights and dignity of victims.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month in both the civilian and military communities. We want to focus on fostering a culture to eliminate sexual assault, and that requires a personal commitment from all personnel at every level.
