On April 24, 2019, millions of people across the world will wear jeans with a purpose, support survivors, and educate themselves and others about all forms of sexual violence. 

Join Safe Place and the campus community in wearing your denim attire to show your support.

The campaign began after 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 the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.
