Denim Day USA — 4/21/10

leave a comment »

The goal at Peace Over Violence (POV) is to “spread awareness about sexual violence prevention by educating.” For over 10 years, POV has helped do so by organizing and promoting something called “Denim Day USA.”

Every year since 1999 Peace Over Violence has organized Denim Day in LA & USA. It is a rape prevention education campaign, where we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement and on this day wear jeans as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault.

By wearing denim tomorrow you can “Send a message to survivors that you support them in their healing.” DenimDayUSA.org can tell you more about how you can make a difference and how you can help make tomorrow a success.

Readers: Share your ideas on how we can help raise awareness for the prevention of sexual violence.
