DENIM DAY APRIL 24th 2024 

Join FUN INC and wear jeans and shoot spaceships with a purpose on the 25th anniversary of Denim Day. 

Since 1999, Peace Over Violence has run an inspiring and powerful opportunity to practice solidarity and support survivors by commiting to exposing harmful behaviors and attitudes surrounding sexual violence.

Denim Day is a campaign in honour of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. 

The campaign 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. 

Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. 

Since then, what started as a local campaign to bring awareness to victim blaming and destructive myths that surround sexual violence has grown into a movement.

Interested in trying pvp? Only done it a few times and want a slow and steady fleet to practice on? Why not come to our Dessies and Down roam!

This is a newbro roam and we will do pvp 101, stop and retrieve stragglers and answer questions while we're out in null looking for content. In fact, there's even handouts (available to anyone that needs one) in the event you don't want to buy your own ship. If you do want to buy your own, there's also SRP available (great for AFs or more expensive dessies!).

18:30 - 18:40 we will X-up and do free ship handouts (if needed)
18:40 - 18:59 fleet 101 and questions
19:00+ pew pew

Will take X's up to 18:50 but if we don't have any rookies that need pvp 101 we may yeet out sooner and you'll have to catch up! So hop in fleet and check when we're leaving!

If you are a player in need of a free ship, read the fleet MOTD to find out how to request one. SRP is available for those that bring their own ships - 50m for DPS ships and 100m for roles
