Sexual Assault Awareness

As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Monday, IHCC is participating in Denim Day

On April 24, 2019, millions of people across the world will wear jeans with a purpose, support survivors, and educate themselves and others about all forms of sexual violence.

Denim Day is Wednesday, April 24th  Wear your jeans, show your support!

Contact the IHCC Counseling Center for more information or if you need support:  651-450-3508 or counseling@inverhills.edu

Some information on the history of Denim Day:

For the past 20 years, the  Denim Day campaign has run on a Wednesday in April in honor 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. The Denim Day campaign was in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual harassment, abuse, assault and rape. In this sexual violence prevention and education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.

Dorthy and the Wizard of OZ April 27

Inver Hills Theatre


Dorothy and the Wizard of OZ

by Steve and Kathy Hotchner

Directed by George M. Roesler


Inver Hills Community College Theatre Department will present a children’s theatre production of Dorothy and the Wizard of OZ by Steve and Kathy Hotchner. This production of Dorothy and the Wizard of OZ is appropriate for kindergarten through third grade students. This year marks the 80th Anniversary of the original film; The Wizard of OZ!


Will Dorothy and Toto ever find their way back to Kansas?  Will her friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, ever find a brain, a heart and the nerve?  The answer is definitely “yes” when the children help the plot along in this participation play.  The children will be simultaneously engaged in two very entertaining activities—experiencing the theatre by actually being involved in the action and rescuing Dorothy and her friends from the Wicked Witch of the West.
