ART MAKING PARTY: GEAR UP FOR DENIM DAY!

  • Self-Help Graphics & Art 1300 East 1st Street Los Angeles, CA, 90033 United States (map)

What will YOUR statement be on this Denim Day?

--

WHY DENIM DAY?

A rape conviction is overturned because the victim was wearing tight jeans. The court determines that tight jeans cannot be removed without cooperation, thereby implying consent. The “denim defense” is born and so is a movement. Since then, people all over the world make a social statement by wearing jeans on Denim Day as a symbol of protest against victim blaming and sexual violence.

GEAR UP FOR DENIM DAY!

This will be an engaging & fun opportunity to connect with community, brainstorm ideas and create personal, powerful signs, messaging, and art! There will be art supplies, cardboard/posterboard, markers, etc.


Wear jeans with a purpose on April 25th.
