DENIM DAY 2019
Join me in a group photo and selfie session to take place at Balboa Park in San Diego in recognition of Denim Day, a day to wear jeans with the purpose of protesting against sexual violence and the attitude of victim blaming that so often occurs in these violent and criminal acts.
Bring your friends and lets support this cause by wearing jeans as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence. Meet at 6 p.m to take a big group photo at 6:15 p.m. This is an informal, no stress photo! It should just take a five to ten minutes for the group photo then feel free to take selfies, share to your social media accounts, and make some new friends!

DENIM DAY HISTORY
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.
