Wilson’s World: Making a Social Statement at Safe Passage Rock Hill for Denim Day

ROCK HILL, S.C. – Wilson was at Safe Passage in Rock Hill where he found out how wearing denim can make a social statement during April, which is Sexual Violence Awareness month.

On Wednesday, April 25th Safe Passage will join with people and organizations all over the country to support Denim Day.  Denim Day was conceived due to a court ruling overturning a rape conviction due to the victim wearing tight jeans.  The backlash that ensued became a symbol of protest against sexual assault and the destructive attitudes surrounding it.  The first Denim Day in the U.S. was held in 1999.

Safe Passage offers support services to families living in abuse so they can make changes in their lives and eliminate violence. They offer the services for those in York, Chester, Lancaster and Union County in South Carolina.

Wilson was also joined by Stan Fraser of Carolina Denim Company to get a quick lesson in denim 101.  Shannon Falls of Comporium talked with Wilson about the importance of supporting Denim Day and Safe Passage.
