Denim Day is an annual movement each April designed to empower and support survivors of sexual violence. Wearing jeans on Denim Day has become an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. Community members can show their support by wearing jeans to work or while out in the community.
YWCA Bergen County’s healingSPACE was the first sexual violence program in New Jersey to bring Denim Day to our home state in 2007. In 2009, Denim Day became a statewide official day of recognition.
