Denim Day is an annual campaign to prevent sexual violence through education and public awareness that culminates on a Wednesday during Sexual Assault Awareness Month each April.

It began in Italy in the 1990s when women legislators wore jeans to protest a Supreme Court verdict overturning a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans.

In April 1999, a social service agency in Los Angeles established the first Denim Day in the United States, and in 2011 a local survivor established Denim Day Milwaukee.

Denim Day 2016 is April 27, a day when community members, survivors, caregivers, students, elected officials, and businesses wear denim as a visible statement in support of survivors and against misconceptions about sexual assault.

Health Heelers are returning to MIAD to help cut the tension of finals! Stop by the Library between noon and 1:30 to pat, play, shake, and relax with some of our favorite on campus animals.

Health Heelers recognizes the value of animals in aiding human health and healing.

The power of animals to promote health and wellness became evident to Laura Hey, founder of Health Heelers, after attending a national conference on research, theory and application of the human-animal bond.

Laura’s education in Animal-Assisted Therapy through a DePaul University partnership brought credence to her long-held belief that some animals have the innate ability to aid in human health and healing . That belief is evident in the successful and valuable programs she creates.

With an extensive background as a rehabilitation professional, a degree in Animal-Assisted Therapy and significant education in dog training and dog behavior, Laura has a great understanding of the human-animal bond and how to utilize that relationship in harmonious interventions that benefit all participants. Combining her deep affection and respect for animals and people, Laura designs and directs very unique and successful Animal -Assisted Therapy programs for health care, educational and community settings.

Laura also teaches Therapy Dog Team Skills classes and oversees the placement, coordination and training of numerous therapy dog teams.

Ms. Hey is a certified Animal-Assisted Therapist and considered to be an expert in Animal-Assisted Therapy.
