Alhambra raises awareness of sexual assault for Denim Day

Alhambra , CA United States

Alhambra’s City Council proclaimed Wednesday, April 25 Denim Day in honor of sexual assault survivors.

Denim Day started in response to an Italian Supreme Court ruling where a man’s rape conviction was overturned because justices reasoned his victim must have helped him remove her tight jeans, which to them implied consent. For 18 years, Peace Over Violence, a non-profit that provides services for sexual assault survivors in Los Angeles and the West San Gabriel Valley, has observed Denim Day in April to combat myths around sexual assault.

Britni Soto, communications and events manager with Peace Over Violence, thanked the City Council for their support. “I appreciate you bringing this to the community to show survivors that they’re not alone, that Alhambra takes this seriously,” Soto said.

Soto added that Peace Over Violence expanded their Denim Day messaging to include survivors of sexual harassment, as part of the #MeToo movement.

She and Suzi Dunkel-Soto, City Council candidate for Alhambra’s 5th district, presented City Council and staff with t-shirts that said, “Rape culture ends with me.”

“When you wear your jeans on your Denim Wednesday, wear it with a purpose,” said Dunkel-Soto, who also asked that the City Council expand messaging around consent into Alhambra’s schools.
