Denim Day California

Denim DayCALCASA is pleased to work with Peace Over Violence to develop Denim Day California materials. The purpose of Denim Day is to wear jeans as a symbol of protest against destructive attitudes about sexual violence. Denim Day California will take place on April 24, 2013. As CALCASA will recognize Denim Day on the steps of the State Capitol, many rape crisis centers will be holding their own Denim Day California events through the state. In March we will make available the logos, user guide, a Denim Day Toolkit developed by Peace Over Violence and send each center some Denim Day California materials.
