Thank you for staying alive, seriously. You are important. Your existence matters. Even if some days your mind convinces you that it doesn't. If you're really struggling right now and looking for a sign to keep going: this is it. Yes, you. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

  • This Thursday, April 26 is Denim Day. Denim Day is a campaign to prevent sexual violence through education and public awareness. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and Denim Day is a call to action for all people to come together by wearing denim as a visible sign of protest against sexual violence. 
Why denim? Denim Day was originally triggered by 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 her rapist 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. Denim Day was developed in response to this case and wearing jeans during this annual event has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. #uharotc #uhmanoa #uhmrespect #pauviolence
