In observance of Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month each April, businesses, organizations and individuals are asked to wear denim in support of sexual assault survivors. Denim Day is a coalition of community agencies, organizations, elected officials, students and volunteers united to promote awareness around the issue of sexual assault. Denim Day grew out of a case in which a rape conviction was overturned because the judge reasoned that the victim’s tight jeans meant that she had to have helped her assailant remove them implying consent. People were outraged all over the world and wearing jeans became an international protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes and myths surrounding sexual assault.

Please join us for a community awareness event on Wednesday 4/24/19 at 4:30 pm in Mitchell Square Park on Broadway and 167th Street.

Don’t forget to wear your jeans!
