Please join the Commission on the Status of Women on the steps of City Hall in Santa Monica on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 6 p.m. to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Denim Day sexual violence prevention education campaign.
Join us in celebrating two powerful decades where the message that “there is no excuse and never and invitation to rape” grew louder and brought about profound societal change.
Denim Day is a campaign created by the non-profit Peace Over Violence, which has provided crucial healing services for survivors of sexual violence while also educating the public about sexual violence, harassment, assault and rape.
Join us, survivors, artists and the Santa Monica community in this rape prevention and education campaign. You, your colleagues, your friends and family can make social statements with your fashion statements by wearing jeans as a visible reinforcement against sexual violence misconceptions.
This is the third Denim Day held by the City of Santa Monica. Come out and make a positive impact and establish good community rapport that will have a lasting impact by creating a diverse, inclusive, safe environment. Together, we can heal our community, advocate for survivors, and educate more people about consent. #DenimDay
