All DayDenim Day

Wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape-prevention education campaign, we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. This year’s Denim Day will focus on educating the community at large on the legal definition of consent. Send pictures of you and your friends showing your support to IVP@binghamton.edu!
