For All Seasons Has Large Turnout for First Community Denim Day
For All Seasons hosted its first community Denim Day event at the Talbot County Court House in Easton, MD. Denim Day was created 20 years ago 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. Participants wore denim with a purpose on this day to show their support in ending sexual violence and to protest the misconceptions and victim-blaming around sexual violence.
May is Mental Health Month!
Mental health is how we think, feel and act. It affects how a child feels about himself/herself, relates to other children and adults, and handles change, stress and other life situations. As many as children experience a mental, emotional or behavioral health problem before the age of 18, yet 70 percent of school-aged children with a diagnosable mental illness do not receive treatment.
