For the past 19 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of 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, therby implying consent.

In Rockford, domestic violence accounts for nearly 30 percent of the city’s violent crime. In addition, in 2016, Illinois ranked eighth in the United States for reported human trafficking cases, with Rockford ranking second in the state, only behind Chicago.
