Jeans 4 Justice. J4J is a local San Diego non-profit that uses fashion, art, fitness, performance and other creative wellness outlets to engage the community in sexual violence prevention.
J4J designs programming around a community driven model of social change that first brings awareness of an issue, educates on how to be an active bystander, and finally empowers participants as leaders in the movement to end sexual violence.
The event is open and free to the public!
Enjoy live music, refreshments, good friends!
Thursday May 26th at Martha Pace Swift Gallery from 6-9pm.
The event is a showing of our Jeans 4 Justice Collection, which are jeans that have been painted by local artists based on stories of sexual assault survivors. Our intention is to use art and fashion as a safe entry point for the community to come together and stand against sexual violence. You can learn more about our organization at www.jeans4justice.org.
There will be a silent auction for all 25 pieces done by local San Diego artists that are currently on display at the Martha Pace Swift Gallery, and an opportunity to try on and "Justify" your own pair of Hollywood Million Denim that can be used to commission a customized pieces of one-of-a-kind wearable art.
Enjoy live music, refreshments, good friends, screening of 5 mini documentary clips by Akira Chan, a community intention setting by some of our story contributors, and more experiential surprises.
