Make a social statement with your fashion statement.  ACC is participating in Denim Day: Wear Jeans with a Purpose on Wednesday, April 29.

In 1999, the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans at the time of the assault.  The justices stated that the victim must have helped her attacker remove her jeans, from which they inferred consent.  People all around the world were outraged.  Wearing jeans on this anniversary became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual violence.

On Wednesday, April 29, pick up your Denim Day button at the information table in the Second Floor Student Lounge.  If you would like a sign for your office supporting and explaining this event, please stop by Student Affairs (Room M2820).  For more information, please contact student.activities@arapahoe.edu
