Nacogdoches community recognizing Denim Day Friday


Friday in Nacogdoches the community will be sporting their denim to speak out against sexual assault.

Denim Day is an international day of awareness in response to over turned Italian sexual assault conviction.  

An Italian jury found a man guilty of raping a woman but  the country's high court reversed the conviction, saying jeans would be too difficult for the attacker to remove without the victim's help.

"We're asking people in the community to wear blue jeans in awareness that the decision was obviously not a good one that regardless if she had helped or not she was still attacked and that's why we have denim day," said Susan Robertson, Fund Development Director, Family Crisis Center.

The SFA campus and the Nacogdoches community will recognize Denim Day Friday.

Lufkin with recognize the awareness day on April 25th.
