Spread the Word

Denim Day at its core is an awareness campaign. So, let's share the story of Denim Day and the message: THERE IS NO EXCUSE AND NEVER AN INVITATION TO RAPE.

The below images, text, photos, and flyers are all yours to use to share on social media, at your school, workplace, church, community center, coffee shop bulletin board — wherever you can get the message out!

Encourage your workplace or school to allow everyone to wear jeans Wednesday for a small donation to Partners Against Violence! Flyers available to post below.
