Denim Day NYC 2020 Virtual Rally

During this period of uncertainty, social distancing, and sheltering-in-place, the Denim Day NYC Coalition believes that a violence-free future needs all of us to join together to support survivors. This requires that we hold ourselves and others accountable and speak out against sexual violence in all its forms. Even though we cannot rally at Foley Square today, we have created a virtual experience to stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence. The virtual rally begins here:

Thank you for joining our 2020 virtual rally and thank you to the members of our coalition for their hard work to make this year's Denim Day a success. 

TAKE A STAND AGAINST SEXUAL ASSAULT & VIOLENCE

Denim Day NYC is a coalition of community organizations, elected officials, students, and volunteers united to promote awareness around the issue of sexual assault. Denim Day grew out of a case in which a rape conviction was overturned because the judge reasoned the victim’s tight jeans meant that she had to have helped her assailant remove them, implying consent. People were outraged all over the world and wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes and myths surrounding sexual assault. Denim Day NYC started in 2010 with a collaborative of three agencies and has grown to more than 40 organizations uniting to promote awareness around the issue of sexual assault.
