Sample Letter to Manager for Denim Day

Dear (or greeting of your choice) ____________________,

April 28, 2021, marks the 23rd celebration of Denim Day in the US. Denim Day is the annual sexual assault awareness event that works to start conversations about the destructive attitudes surrounding sexual assault, such as victim-blaming. Denim Day especially focuses on raising awareness about abuse and violence against women and children

Participating in Denim Day provides a wonderful opportunity for ____________ (company name/our company/our office/our team/etc.) to show solidarity with survivors of abuse around the country and to encourage open discussion about how we can work in our personal and professional lives to reduce violence in our communities.

I would like to sponsor Denim Day at our office and invite others (employees/associates/team members/etc.) to join me in showing support for Denim Day on Wednesday, April 28, 2021.

There are many ways to show support for Denim Day:

  • Wearing jeans
  • Wearing a denim shirt or blazer
  • Wearing an “Ask Me About Denim Day” sticker
  • Posting educational posters in the _______________________ (break room/coffee station/cafeteria/etc.) during weeks before Denim Day

I have attached all the relevant materials for your review.  I look forward to discussing this further.

Best (or greeting of your choice),

______________________________________

The Denim Day campaign 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. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. This year’s Denim Day will be held on April 28, 2021.
