Since 2013, the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA) has hosted Colorado Denim Day in order to raise awareness about sexual assault, show support for survivors, and unite communities across Colorado in taking a stand against sexual violence. Colorado Denim Day is our statewide event aligning with Denim Day events across the world on the 4th Wednesday in April.
On Colorado Denim Day, April 26, 2017, state agencies, businesses, and other groups in Colorado will be asked to allow their employees to pay $5 in exchange for wearing jeans on Denim Day. Employees wearing jeans will also have stickers that they can wear to let everyone know why they are wearing jeans on Denim Day. Wearing jeans is a conversation-starter and visual sign of your support of survivors. Colorado Denim Day shows the power of communities coming together to support survivors and take a stand against sexual violence.
Funds donated by Colorado Denim Day participants will directly support CCASA’s work to ensure that Colorado communities believe and support survivors, hold perpetrators accountable, and take action to end sexual violence. CCASA is the leader at the state level, serving as the collective voice of sexual assault victims and service providers in public policy initiatives, education and training, and collaborative efforts to improve the response to and prevent sexual assault in every community in Colorado. Every dollar raised on Colorado Denim Day goes directly to supporting survivors and creating change across Colorado! Visit www.ccasa.org to learn more about our work.
