4i vveanesday, Aprii 2, 20 i4 ....... Uulletm, ecora, I:'rogresswe, keporte Community asked to wear denim to show awareness against violence "The Resource Center is so happy to team Up with Peace Over Violence for the third year in a row to raise awareness and educate our community on the consent culture," says Trina Ritter, bystander engagement and violence prevention specialist with The Resource Center. "Please join us in showing support for Denim Day on Monday, April 28." This year marks the 15th celebration of Denim Day, and the third Plumas County celebration. Denim Day is an annual violence prevention day sponsored by the Los Angeles-based nonprofit Peace Over Violence. Denim Day especially focuses on raising awareness about abuse and violence against women and children. Close to 10 million people across the country participated in 2013. There are several ways folks can show support for Denim Day: --Wear jeans. --Wear a denim shirt or blazer. --Wear a denim patch. --Hang a Denim Day sign or poster in a window or office. "Participating in Denim Day provides a wonderful opportunity for The Resource Center to show solidarity with survivors of abuse around the country and to think about how we can work in our personal and professional lives to reduce violence in our communities," said Ritter. She invites anyone with questions about participation, Denim Day or Peace Over Violence to contact her at, or 283-5515, ext. 16. She also welcomes donations to support the educational mission of Denim Day. For the past 15 years, Peace Over Violence has run the Denim Day in LA and USA ( campaign in April during Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. This rape prevention education campaign asks community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.

You can see his handiwork inside the bakery: he built all of the tables. He makes screen doors, cabinets and other custom furniture. Norm said soon he'll have a few pieces in the shop for sale. Jeanne (pronounced Jeanie) is the baker, and the name, Jennelli's, comes from a 1995 baking venture she undertook with Ellie Heiman in Greenville. Though their joint business lasted just a year, Jeanne continued working the bakery for another 18 months under the Jenelli's name. Eighteen years later, Jeanne dusted off the handcrafted sign that can now be found hanging inside the bakery. "I enjoyed it so much the first time and always wanted to do it again," Jeanne said.
