To show solidarity with survivors of sexual assault yesterday on DenimDay, the teen girls group created denim pockets with words of support.

DenimDay is a campaign in April in honor of sexual assault awareness month (SAAM). DenimDay was established in 1999 to bring awareness to victim blaming and other destructive myths surrounding sexual assault.
