For the past 22 years, Peace Over Violence has run an inspiring and powerful opportunity to practice solidarity and support survivors by renewing our commitment to exposing harmful behaviors and attitudes surrounding sexual violence. Denim Day is a campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The campaign began after 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 the person who raped her 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, what started as a local campaign to bring awareness to victim blaming and destructive myths that surround sexual violence has grown into a movement. As the longest running sexual violence prevention and education campaign in history, Denim Day asks community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.
Get out those jeans and shake the jelly to our eclectic playlist.

From Kelly’s Lot we have a “Folk” Album not the usual Blues we have come to expect and a very pleasant change it is too.
But then Kelly started out as a Folk singer a good few years ago in Hollywood.
Bluesy Folk, Folk Rock, Contemporary Folk and a Holiday song all make an appearence on Kelly’s 2020 Album.
The album starts of with Track one and then moves on to track two, let’s try again, track one “Butterfly” also has been released as a single and is probably the most California Folky song on the album. Classy backing makes “Butterfly” a winner.
Every track is a surprise and makes for entertaining listen, time well spent.
