April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
We have had to postpone or cancel some of our fundraising and awareness events we had planned for April. The good news is, everyone can still be involved "virtually" in Sexual Assault Awareness and ACTION month! Here's how...
Day of Action: Wear Teal on April 7
On April 7, we are calling on individuals and communities to show support for survivors by wearing teal, the official color for sexual violence prevention. By wearing teal, supporters can drive further awareness and the importance of consent, respect and supporting survivors. Be sure to use the hashtags #StandWithSTAR and #WearTeal when you share photos of your teal!
RAINN Day of Action April 14
RAINN Day is an opportunity for students on college campuses (and anyone who would like to participate) to demonstrate to our peers that they are an ally in the fight against sexual violence. RAINN Day 2020 will be held on Tuesday, April 14.

The RAINN Day hashtag #LetsGetLoud is a call to action that reminds us that we can make a difference on when we work together.

Draw a blue triangle representing a megaphone on your hand on April 14, take a photo, and post on Instagram sharing why you’re joining college students across the country for # LetsGetLoud . Share a statistic, a personal story, or a commitment to step up if you see something happening that doesn’t look right.

#LetsGetLoud about standing up for survivors on April 14th. Learn more at
Denim Day 2020 on April 29
The International Denim Day campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it

Since then, what started as a local campaign to bring awareness to victim blaming and destructive myths that surround sexual violence has grown into a movement. As the longest running sexual violence prevention and education campaign in history, Denim Day asks community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.

Wear Jeans and share a photo using the hashtags #StandWithSTAR and #DenimDay on April 29!
