Denim Day 2019! #denimday 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. Wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual harassment, abuse, assault and rape. #JCADA helps these victims of power-based violence. Call our helpline to help a friend or loved one, or to get help yourself - you are not alone. 1-877-88-JCADA

This year JCADA is hosting a community Wellness Fair that is free for everyone! Each day during our #WeekOfWellness, we will be highlighting some of the participants you can meet Sunday.

Emotional Wellness: Some find prioritizing their emotional wellness tough. One organization on Sunday is trying to change that; UMttr (You Matter) is a community of young adults leading a movement to change the story from bullying, depression and suicide to a compassionate culture where every person matters. Be sure to check out their table Sunday to see how you can be a part of the movement to a compassionate culture. AWARE®'s core workshop It's Not Love® will also be highlighted at the Wellness Fair! Follow your own story, and learn how to emotionally support teens and other young adults in your life struggling with dating violence by checking out their booth.

The JCADA 5K & Wellness Day is a RAIN OR SHINE EVENT! Even if it rains on our 5K parade, the Wellness Fair (free entry!) will still be happening inside Ohr Kodesh Congregation between 10am and 12:30pm. So even in the rain, you can still improve your emotional wellness this Sunday!
