3.) Denim Day
March 27
Organizations worldwide participate in Denim Day to show support of survivors and raise awareness about the crimes of sexual assault. In 1999 a court overturned a rape conviction in Italy after the court declared that since the victim wore tight jeans at the time of the assault and could not have removed them herself, the victim must have willingly participated. In honor of this victim and Sexual Assault Awareness Month, PEACC encourages the campus community to wear denim.
Additional Information: Flyers and stickers available for your department. For information, contact the PEACC program, 852-2663.

We have discussed a variety of themes and topics from “The Other Wes Moore” in the two years it has been our Book-in-Common. Which themes continued to come up?
