ROYALS For Denim Day
“The event was eye-opening. It was a game-changer. The event was helpful because it not only brought more awareness to sexual harassment and assault, but it also helped others who didn’t know about Denim Day to participate and make them feel that they could do something to make a change.” — Mark Juarez, Senior peer leader
“This was a worthwhile and powerful event that brought awareness to the number of people who have been victims of some sort of sexual violation. In addition, I also feel like Denim Day heightened the solidarity, unity, and empowerment that our students felt in terms of preventing future instances of sexual violence.” — Laura Jaeggi, Magnet Coordinator
On April 24th, the ROYALS helped spread awareness for sexual assault victims across all four academies. Our booth was interactive with activities for all to participate in like decorating skateboards, jeans, and banners filled with words of encouragement to sexual assault survivors. Information about the history of Denim Day was also given, so that we could all understand the significance of this event. We hope that anyone who feels alone, sees that they have a community to support them.
