On Tuesday, April 8 from 6-8:30pm at the theater in Grand Avenue Elementary School in Prairie du Sac, Hope House will be facilitating Darkness to Light's Stewards of Children 2.0. This free training teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. This 2.0 version has updated statistics and a new video and workbook. A certificate from the Registry will be available for daycare providers. To learn more about this training, please visit www.d2l.org. To ensure enough materials, please register with the Sauk Prairie Community Center at 608-643-8386 or online at www.saukpr.k12.wi.us/commcenter. Denim Day is in honor of a young woman who was raped by her driving instructor. Her rapist was let free after the judge ruled that the woman's jeans were so tight that she must have helped him take them off and thus was giving her consent.
Wearing jeans on Denim Day is a symbolic gesture that honors survivors of sexual assault. It sends the message that we need to support and believe them, not blame them. We need to understand what consent really is.
Please ask your employer if employees can wear jeans on April 23 in exchange for a small donation to Hope House. If you plan on participating, we'd appreciate it if you let us know at 608-356-9123.

Please consider joining other churches in participating in Denim Day at Church on April 27, the Sunday after Easter. Congregants are invited to wear jeans to church for a small donation to Hope House or, for those that would rather not wear jeans, they can purchase denim bookmarks for their hymnals. Please let Hope House know if you're interested.
