Encourage community members to wear jeans to work or school to promote discussion of the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.
It is an international protest day responding to an Italian Supreme Court overruling a rape conviction in 1999 stating that because jeans are difficult to remove, the assailant could not have done so without the victim's help.
#TealTuesdayYankton Each Tuesday, community members are asked to wear teal to raise awareness throughout Yankton
