Jeans for Justice

12-1pm Friday, April 18

Much more than an event, Jeans for Justice encourages all campus community members to wear jeans on Friday, April 18 in a visible protest of all forms of power-based personal violence. Together, we are visually stating that no one deserves to be harmed, no matter who they are, what they are doing, where they are, or what they are wearing. Participate in this international campaign to demonstrate support for survivors and intolerance for violence.

The Jeans for Justice rally will include music, speakers, food, and awards. Bring a friend!
