Denim Day: Wear Jeans for Justice Coffee Kick Off!
Bldg. 1, Room 301

8- 9 AM

Denim Day began in 1999 as a part of an international protest of an Italian High Court decision to overturn a rape conviction because the survivor was wearing jeans at the time of her assault. The judge said she must have helped the perpetrator remove her jeans and thus wasn't "really" raped. The verdict became a symbol of the injustice sexual assault survivors face all over the world, and a call to stop victim blaming. Show solidarity by wearing jeans on April 26th and please join us for free coffee and treats Wednesday morning!
