Denim Day Gathering to Raise Sexual Assault Awareness
4/24/2018 JONESBORO – The final Pack Pact sexual assault awareness campaign event, the Denim Day gathering, begins Wednesday, April 25, at 3 p.m. at the denim pocket quilt in the food court area of the Carl R. Reng Student Union at Arkansas State University. The Title IX office is coordinating the Pack Pact sexual assault awareness campaign at A-State. The jean pocket quilt was made from denim pockets by students and faculty in the Department of Art and Design. The art installation will hang in the Student Union for the remainder of the semester. Everyone was invited to write notes of support to survivors, or survivors may discuss their own experiences, and place the notes in the pockets. As a concluding activity for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, which the university has observed throughout April, students will read some of the personal accounts and words of support that have been shared by victims. Theatre majors Whitley Fore, Reilly Heffer and Laura Martin have volunteered to pull the notes and read them aloud. Everyone is welcome to attend and listen to this thought-provoking presentation. Millions of people across the country and world will wear jeans on Denim Day to raise awareness around sexual violence issues and to support survivors of rape and sexual assault. The Pack Pact to Act for Change Together at Arkansas State is a series of events throughout the spring semester designed to raise awareness of the issues of sexual assault and to work toward positive changes within the culture. The Pact calls on all members of the A-State community to act with integrity and respect, to not be a bystander, and to positively change the culture because Every Red Wolf Counts. It encourages everyone to work for the well-being of the entire campus community.
