Announcements

Denim Day - April 27

The Denim Day campaign began as part of an international protest of an Italian High Court decision to overturn a rape conviction because the victim was wearing jeans. The judgment sparked a worldwide outcry from those who understand coercion, threats and violence accompany the act of rape. Everyone is urged to wear denim or a "Why Denim?" button (contact CARE for buttons) on Wednesday, April 27. Each year, individuals, student organizations, staff groups, and departments around UCI participate in a Denim Day photo contest. Submission guidelines can be found on the website.
