South Hills Community News Release

STATE COLLEGE, PA — To acknowledge April's designation as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, students of South Hills School of Business & Technology’s Criminal Justice program and members of the C.O.P.S. Club recognized "Denim Day" on April 24, 2019. Denim Day is a world-wide event that grew from a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction based on the tight jeans the victim wore when she was attacked. The initial decision sparked global outrage, and protesters wore jeans to work as a symbol of solidarity with sexual assault victims.

The Denim Day campaign has been held annually for the last 20 years to help raise awareness and increase community commitment to end sexual violence. Students, faculty, and staff purchased ribbons that permitted them to wear jeans. Additionally, C.O.P.S. Club members held a bake sale, and all proceeds will be donated to the Centre Safe (formerly the Centre County Women's Resource Center).
