P1 Participates in Denim Day to Protest Sexual Violence

PriorityOne Group is proud to participate in Denim Day 2016 on April 27.

Denim Day is a campaign to prevent sexual violence through education and public awareness, and a call to action for all people to wear denim as a visible sign of protest against sexual violence.

The first Denim Day in LA was in April 1999, and has continued every year since. As the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition notes, "Denim Day was originally triggered by 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 her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. ... Denim Day was developed in response to this case and wearing jeans during this annual event has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault."
