Denim Day is a global campaign that first started after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court. A rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped her rapist 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.
Blacc and his wife Maya Jupiter have supported the cause and plan to attend the Denim Day rally in Los Angeles alongside Mayor Eric Garcetti and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.
