Why a focus on engaging in change? The Catholic tradition has a long history of social teaching to promote social justice as a “constitutive dimension of the practice of faith” (E1:6.1 Justice in the World, 1991). Our Catholic heritage charges us to “defend the goodness, dignity, and freedom of each person, and to foster sensitivity to social and ethical concerns,” which are principles evident in the mission of Saint Mary's College of California.

Denim Day

Date & Time: 
Thu, 04/12/2012 - 11:00 to 14:00

Denim Day History: In 1992 an 18-year-old in Italy was picked up by her driving instructor to begin a driving lesson. Soon after she was raped on the side of the road by the instructor. She pressed charges and won her case. The instructor appealed, and the case went to the Italian High Court. In 1999 the court overturned the conviction with a member of the High Court declaring that since the victim wore very tight jeans, the instructor could not have removed them himself, therefore the victim must have willingly participated.
