April 26th, 2017 - Denim Day
Join the Brazos
Valley community on Wednesday, April 26th
for a nation-wide campaign called Denim Day! “The campaign was originally
triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was
overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight
jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans. In this rape prevention
education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and
students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this
day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround
sexual assault." (www.denimdayinfo.org, 2016) For more information about getting your business, school, or
organization involved in this campaign, please contact Tracey Calanog at (979)
731-1000 or email email@example.com!
