WHAT DOES 'BEYOND THE JEANS'
MEAN TO YOU?
THIS YEAR, WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT BEYOND THE JEANS MEANS TO YOU. WHAT ALTERNATIVE PATHS TO HEALING AND JUSTICE FOR SURVIVORS DO YOU WANT TO SEE, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE MOST OFTEN LEFT OUT, AND MOST IMPACTED.
TAKING OUR 2021 PLEDGE.
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 this year again 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 is incorporating images of Consent created by teens in STEPS’ Grow.Rise.Lead (GRL) group. The unique cape is being created into an Instragram filter so It can be worn by everyone on Denim Day. It will later become a “travelling” garment to be worn throughout the year by advocates, influencers, students, survivors, elected officials, and celebrities.
