Denim Day marks a day to show support for sexual violence prevention and education

L.A. City Hall and the Student Assembly for Gender Empowerment along with the Survivor Support Community hold events

Denim Day is the world’s longest-running sexual prevention and education campaign. The day marks the overturning of an Italian rape conviction in 1998 because the Italian Supreme Court indicated the woman wore denim which implied consent. Women in parliament responded by wearing jeans in solidarity.

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and other guest speakers spoke at Wallis Annenberg Hall to discuss extremism and how to terminate hate.

And the Spirit of Troy has decided on next year’s drum major re-electing Jacobo Herrera. We talk to the returning leader about his reaction and next season’s goals.

Annenberg TV News is Live on YouTube Monday through Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
