As a Violence Prevention Specialist Volunteer for Peace Over Violence, I invite you to join my team and I, as we pound 13.1 miles of pavement this April at the Hollywood Half Marathon, for the 15th annual Denim Day in LA and USA, organized by Peace Over Violence.
My GOAL IS $100.00 PER MILE!
Every year since 1999 Peace Over Violence has organized Denim Day in LA & USA on the 4th Wednesday in April.
It is a rape prevention education campaign, where we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement and on this day wear jeans as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault.
Every two and a half minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted.
One in six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, there were 1,117 rapes during the year 2003, with only 260 rape suspects arrested.
SURVIVORS DESERVE SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE, NOT SHAME AND BLAME.
WE WANT TO BUILD HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS, FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES FREE FROM SEXUAL, DOMESTIC AND INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE.
