The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault holds a Wrap Around the Capitol annually as part of Denim Day. The idea is for lawmakers and the public to learn about the importance of laws and policies to support victims. Denim Day is symbolic—it refers to the overturning of a rape conviction in Europe after a judge decided that the victim’s jeans were so tight that she must have helped remove them. Thus he concluded the act was consensual, not rape.
Those attending the WCASA events say: “The mix of survivors and providers is very powerful for me, thank you.” And “I am excited to have attended the Survivors & Allies conference, and I can’t wait for the next one!”
