Colorado Denim Day is fast approaching! There plenty of ways for you to make a difference right here in Colorado and make our state safer for survivors of sexual assault. And you don’t even have to wait until April 27th to get started!
Raise Awareness in Your Community
While there are a lot of ways to get involved with Colorado Denim Day, raising awareness is one of the most important. The more people who support sexual assault survivors, and believe them, the more work we can do to end sexual violence in our communities. You can raise awareness about Denim Day by creating or resharing social media posts, talking to people in your community about it, you can even host events in your town. Follow CCASA on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. to find Denim Day social media posts to share and information to pass along to those in your community. Denim Day is all about raising awareness and when you help us do that, you are supporting survivors.
Colorado Denim Day is also a fundraising event for CCASA. As a nonprofit organization, we can’t do the work we do without the generosity of survivor supporters. Your Denim Day donations help CCASA advocate for survivors at the State Capitol, make all of our meetings, trainings, and webinars language accessible, and support sexual assault service providers in many different ways. Any gift you’re able to give goes a long way. Your generosity is always appreciated, especially during these times when sexual assault programs are facing a decrease in funding and dollars aren’t going as far as they used to. You can make a donation here.
Another way for you get involved with Colorado Denim Day is by participating from the comfort of your own home! You can create your own Denim Day social media content to share with your friends and family. You can also connect with a wider audience by sending Brandi Dye, our communications and community engagement manager, videos or blogs about why Denim Day is important to you. The Colorado Denim Day website also has downloadable coloring pages. These give you the opportunity to talk about consent and believing survivors in an age-appropriate way with your family while you all color. Be sure to share your creations on social media using #CODenimDay
