Take a stand against sexual assault by wearing denim on April 25, 2018 as part of April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month! During the day, take part in free activities at Shasta College addressing consent, transforming rape culture, and bystander intervention from 12 noon-2:00 pm in the Student Center Quad. The day’s events will culminate with Shasta CARES (Campus Advocacy, Resources and Education for Safety) hosting Take Back the Night on campus at 7:00pm with educational booths provided by campus and community partners, a group march in solidarity against sexual violence and a survivor speak out.
Denim Day is a campaign sponsored by Shasta CARES, a collaboration among Shasta College, One SAFE Place, Redding Police Department, Empower Tehama, Rape Crisis Intervention and Prevention, Tehama County Sheriff, Red Bluff Police Department, Human Response Network, and Trinity County Sheriff to draw attention to the fact that rape and sexual assault remains a serious issue in our society. With proper education there is compelling evidence that we can be successful in reducing incidents of this alarming and psychologically damaging crime. Please join us and wear jeans on April 25, 2018 to help communicate the message that there is “no excuse and never an invitation to rape.” Denim Day is an international campaign developed by Peace Over Violence and is sponsored on the Shasta College campus by Shasta CARES.
