Special thanks to STEPS to End Family Violence and Celestino Couture.
STEPS to End Family Violence – a program of Rising Ground - has worked to prevent intimate partner and gender-based violence since 1986 with a focus on prevention, intervention, and policy advocacy. STEPS has been an active member of Denim Day NYC for 10 years and has partnered with the fashion forward Celestino Couture to create a denim Fashion Impact Cape! The eco-conscious design house creates garments with a social justice purpose and incorporated images of Consent created by teens in STEPS’ Grow.Rise.Lead (GRL) group. The unique cape was created into an Instragram filter to be worn by everyone on Denim Day. It has now become a “travelling” garment to be worn throughout the year by advocates, influencers, students, survivors, elected officials, and celebrities.
