Denim Day in LA 2009

We want to thank everyone throughout Los Angeles who wore jeans yesterday to unite against the sexual assault of girls, women, boys and men.

Peace Over Violence’s annual Denim Day in LA & USA is a campaign to raise awareness and educate the public about rape and sexual assault. This year it was Wednesday April 22.

Here in the City Attorney’s Office, jeans were visible throughout the office as a sign of protest against the myths that still surround sexual assault, a show of support for survivors, and a clear commitment to breaking the silence and ending sexual violence, once and for all.

Our thanks to everyone for joining together in their support of this important cause!
