On April 24, 2013, Bugbee & Conkle participated in National Denim Day, a national awareness event promoted by the YWCA

The history of Denim Day dates back to Italy in 1992, when a young girl was raped by her driving instructor. The driver was tried and found guilty. Years later, in a shocking turn of events, the Italian Supreme Court acquitted the rapist.  Because the victim wore tight jeans when the rape occurred, the court found she must have helped the rapist remove the jeans, and therefore, the rape was consensual. To protest this outrageous decision, women in the Italian Parliament responded by wearing jeans. Support spread to America, and in 1999, a group in California adopted Denim Day.” The YWCA recently joined this important event.  The proceeds from Denim Day help fund many YWCA programs, including Battered Women’s Shelter, H.O.P.E (Rape Crisis), ENCORE Plus, HEART Plus, YWCA Child Care Resource and Referral, Youth Development, and Permanent Supportive Housing.
