Events

4/29/15

12:00am - 12:00am

Denim Day is held annually on the last Wednesday of April.

This day was created as a prevention and education campaign to bring awareness to one victim's experience. A 1999, court ruling convicting a man of sexual assault was overruled by a Supreme Court stating that "the woman was wearing jeans and they could not have come off without her help". Denim Day was created to honor and support that victim and many others, like this woman, who have experienced victim blaming. All day Alternatives to Violence, we will be wearing jeans and "denim day" pins and we encourage the community to do the same at their schools and places of work. By participating, we hope to send the message that we support victims of violent crimes and the many people who work in the field of victim services. Stop by ATV for a Denim Day pin and/or share our upcoming events through your organizations, Facebook and people who care. For further information contact Brittany ~ Sexual Assault Therapist @ 669.5150
