Wear Purple Day

Wear purple

Taking place every October, Wear Purple Day is a national awareness day to educate around domestic and relationship violence. ASU encourages staff, faculty, and students to wear purple and band together against Domestic Violence. A large sticker with a message of support to victims is given to all those who participate. 2019 Wear Purple Day is Thursday, October 24th. ASU encourages all faculty, staff and students to wear purple on this day to band together against domestic violence and stand in solidarity with survivors. The ASU Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention Program will be providing stickers and further education about the day on all four of ASU's campuses. Visit MVP events for more information and to view all sticker pick-up dates and locations.

Denim Day

I protest sexual violence

National Denim Day aims to raise awareness about sexual violence, consent and healthy relationships. The event began after outrage over an Italian Supreme Court decision that freed someone who had committed rape because his victim wore tight jeans, arguing that because her jeans were tight she had to of removed them herself, making the act consensual. Every April, students, faculty and staff are invited to participate by wearing jeans and the official “Denim Day” stickers, which show support for victims and survivors of sexual violence.
