The YWCA of Bergen County Rape Crisis Center is bringing Denim Day to New Jersey to educate students about issues of consent and sexual violence.
The YWCA of Bergen County Rape Crisis Center is focusing its efforts on educating young women and men around the issue of consent, introducing an awareness campaign entitled, “Don’t Touch My Jeans ‘Til You Know What I Mean.” Over 50 high schools and colleges throughout Bergen County have been invited to participate in the campaign, and they will be receiving Denim Day Toolkits filled with ideas and materials for organizing their own events.
On March 26, 2009, NJCASA's Sexual Violence Prevention: Connecting the Dots Conference goal is to develop effective strategies for sexual violence prevention. We will examine overlapping risk and protective factors for sexual violence perpetration as they relate to other public health fields. We will also explore strategies for sexual violence prevention from the individual level to the community level.
