The Kappa Omega Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega has participated in Denim Day since our founding at IUPUI to take a stand against domestic violence and raise awareness for sexual assault victims.
Denim Day is a campaign ran by Peace Over Violence that honors sexual assault survivors. The campaign was started when the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction blaming the victim and judging by the tightness of her jeans. It was said that "consent" had to have been given because the victim would have had to help her rapist remove her jeans. The next day, women wore jeans to their workplaces to show support for the victim and stand by her side.
Alpha Chi Omega participates in Denim Day each year to show support for the victims in our society today. We raise awareness by scattering jeans across the courtyard with statistics about sexual assault. Kappa Omega hands out Denim Day buttons, merchandise and flyers to help start a conversation and educate our campus about sexual violence.
Take a look at some of the pictures below from our 2018 event. We are super excited for our 2019 Denim Day! Be sure to show your support and rock your favorite denim on April 24th!
