TODAY IS DENIM DAY! Denim Day is observed to support sexual assault awareness. We observe this day in honor of a woman who was forcibly raped by her driving instructor. The woman pressed charges, but the case was dismissed because the judge decided that, “... because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape, but consensual sex.”
Social Change Club thanks you for your participation in this movement. There is no excuse and never an invitation to harass, abuse, assault, or rape.
Tomorrow is A Day of Silence! If you wish to make this day long vow of silence symbolizing the silencing effect of anti-LGBTQ bullying and harassment, please stop by Student Services in the AM. We will provide you with paper slips you can show to staff and peers explaining your silence.
