There’s one big difference in this coming-of-age tale – its characters are puppets! Winner of the Tony Triple Crown (Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book) Broadway hit Avenue Q brings to the stage a colorful, hilarious portrait of the real world.

What is Denim Day?

In 1999 an Italian Supreme Court overturned the conviction of a 45 year old driving instructor for the rape of his 18 year old student. The reason cited was the girl’s clothing. It was determined that because she wore blue jeans the instructor could not have removed them without assistance, therefore she must have consented. People everywhere were outraged and within hours prominent women within the legal community were walking the courthouse in blue jeans to protest the decision. Since that time Denim Day in LA and the USA was born. Peace Over Violence, the agency behind Denim Day, centers this campaign around the fact that a woman’s choice of clothing is no excuse for rape.

How do you participate?

Wear blue jeans on April 27, 2016
 to make a statement. As an individual you can talk about Denim Day with your friends and family. As a business or workplace you can wear blue jeans and make a small donation to the Rock the Denim Campaign to benefit the non-profits in this community that are working with victims of sexual assault every day.

If you, your business, your campus, your organization or faith-based group would like to pledge your commitment to the campaign, please fill out the linked committment forms. We will send you flyers that you can display in your workplace, school, organization or church to let those around you know that you are wearing jeans to take a stand against sexual violence.

Proceeds to benefit SAFE Homes – Rape Crisis Coalition.

What is Victims’ Rights Week?

The National Center for Victims of Crime and the Office

National Crime Victim’ Rights Week (NCVRW) which will be observed April 19–25, 2015.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) is an opportunity to highlight challenges faced by crime victims and to emphasize the ongoing struggle to establish victims’ rights. This year’s theme—Engaging Communities. Empowering Victims.—focuses on the role communities play providing victims with the support they need to pursue justice and recovery. It also calls attention to the difficulties experienced by crime victims in underserved communities or in marginalized groups. Engaging communities and empowering victims takes resources, dedication, and persistence to establish a welcoming, compassionate, and supportive environment for all victims to share their stories. Creating a comprehensive public awareness campaign for your NCVRW outreach allows you to engage your members, local organizations, and the wider public in the important work of providing crime victims in our community with both the short- and long-term help they need as they recover on their terms.
