As a civic engagement activity, Ladies First at Daniel chose to recognize Denim Day. Our goal was to bring awareness to the purpose of this day for the community, students, staff and faculty. Denim Day’s purpose is to bring awareness to sexual assault and sexual abuse, by taking a stand against negative and destructive attitudes about sexual harassment and rape. We engaged with activities, flyers, posters and videos. Our Denim Day event was impactful because students and staff were able to learn the story behind Denim Day and take a pledge to stand against sexual abuse/sexual assault against females and males.
Students had the opportunity to not wear a school uniform, and make a fashion statement, while learning and serving a purpose. A few activities students participated in were; cutting out paper jeans and writing a message on them, decorating old denim jeans with a message, and signing a pledge.
