Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month
This April, The Purple Door will highlight the Coastal Bend’s commitment to supporting and empowering a survivor’s voice. Denim jeans have become the global symbol to end victim-blaming attitudes by asserting our dress never implies or constitutes consent. In the Coastal Bend, denim jeans will also assert that the responsibility for sexual violence belongs only to the perpetrator. Why denim?
The Purple Door encourages our community to “Lose the Ribbon because Prevention is Action.” We can all get involved to end harmful attitudes and beliefs that continue to silence survivors while excusing perpetrators of violence. Ending sexual violence begins with all of us.
Lose the Ribbon
Prevention is Action
Ending sexual violence begins with you!
