Wed Apr 28 Denim Day

LACASA Center invites individuals, businesses and organizations in Livingston County to participate in Denim Day on Wednesday, April 28. The Denim Day campaign began after an Italian Supreme Court ruling overturned a previous rape conviction. Justices in the case said that since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped her rapist remove them, thereby implying consent. Each year, around the anniversary date of the court’s ruling, organizations, businesses, elected officials, and people around the world wear blue jeans to raise awareness about sexual assault, consent and victim-blaming. LACASA encourages the public to wear denim, post a picture of themselves on social media and use hashtag #DenimDayLivCo. Businesses and organizations who would like free posters and stickers to distribute for the day should contact Sexual Assault Response Team Director, Sherry Boroto, at 517-548-1350 or sboroto@lacasacenter.org
