BROWARD COUNTY, FL -  The Nancy J. Cotterman Center, Broward County's only certified Rape Crisis and Children's Advocacy Center encourages residents to wear denim or denim ribbons on Tuesday, April 16th, Denim Day in Broward County.

"By wearing denim, residents will help increase awareness of sexual violence and child abuse and ultimately foster greater understanding and prevention," said Ana Ferrer, Human Services Administrator for Nancy J. Cotterman Center.

At the 10AM Broward County Commission meeting at the Governmental Center, Commissioners will present a proclamation to community partners that collaborate with the Nancy J. Cotterman Center recognizing April as Sexual Assault Awareness and Child Abuse Prevention Month and April 16th as Denim Day in Broward County.
