PULL OUT YOUR BEST DENIM, TOMORROW IS NATIONAL DENIM DAY!
“Make a social statement with your fashion statement. Wear denim on April 26th!”
Stand with your community and survivors of sexual assault tomorrow by wearing denim. What’s denim got to do with sexual assault awareness? The nationally recognized day stems from a rape case in Italy in the 1990’s.
For the past 18 years Peace Over Violence has run this campaign and we always participate and encourage our community to do so as well. It is such a simple, yet profound, way to physically show that sexual assault victims are supported here, and that perpetrators have no place in our community. In addition, those working in an agency where jeans or denim is not the standard “dress code” it opens up a door for a conversation regarding sexual assault awareness and victim support with those who might not normally have a platform to do so.
DON’T FORGET – Tag us in your pictures! We want to show victims and survivors in our community just how well they are supported by sharing everyone’s denim attire on social media.
