Jeans for Justice is an international campaign aimed at raising public awareness and community action to end sexual assault.
In 1999, the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing jeans. To protest the decision, community members wore jeans to represent that it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, nobody deserves to be sexually assaulted.
Participate in this international campaign to demonstrate support for survivors and intolerance for violence.
Rally from 12-1pm at the Student Center will include volunteer appreciation and a testimonial by Matthew Deffendall. As Director of First Generation Initiatives, Matthew is a champion of non-violence, social justice and advocacy.
