​​Denim Day is a day of protest against violence and support of survivors. Denim Day began in Italy in 1997 when an 18 year old woman was raped by her driving instructor. In an appeal to the Italian Supreme Court, it was ruled that the woman would have had to help the man remove her jeans, thus making the act consensual. Women in the Italian Parliament protested the court's ruling by wearing denim to work and holding signs that read, "Jeans: An Allibi for Rape." Americans quickly took notice and have been wearing denim on April 27th for more than a decade. 

STAR encourages you to host a Dress Down Denim Day on April 27th at your business or organization.  For more information, or to participate, contact the Development Manager Peter Knape at pknape@staralaska.org

The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.

By working together and pooling our resources during the month of April, we can highlight sexual violence as a major public health, human rights and social justice issue and reinforce the need for prevention efforts. We hope to see you at or participating in one or all of the events we have planned for the Anchorage community this coming April!
