CASE STUDY

PEACE OVER VIOLENCE

Denim Day

 

Denim Day in April is the longest-running sexual violence prevention and education campaign in the United States, inspiring and mobilizing individuals, communities, and institutions by providing tools, messaging, and an accessible call to action: wearing jeans with a purpose.

 

APPROACH

To kick off this annual event and attract general market media coverage in Los Angeles and beyond, we assisted Peace Over Violence with media relations for a City Hall news conference featuring local elected officials alongside survivors of sexual violence, all dressed in denim in a show of unity. Featured spokespeople informed local media on important issues, from clearing rape kit backlogs, addressing assaults on public transit, to preventing sexual violence on college campuses and military bases.

IMPLEMENTATION

Denim Day is more than just a City Hall press conference—it also includes a series of local events such as rallies at local schools, performances, and public testimony at local City Council meetings. General market media across greater Los Angeles receive detailed information about related events to cover in different neighborhoods.
 
To promote messaging and publicize calls to action, high profile Los Angeles morning shows are invited to get on the Denim Day bandwagon by having their anchors and on-air staff wear denim. Denim Day spokespeople provide interviews to explain the history of Denim Day and the importance of its mission.
