Jeans 4 Justice Artist Denim

Jeans 4 Justice is a unique non-profit organization dedicated to ending sexual violence through creative awareness campaigns and cutting-edge education programs.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Jeans 4 Justice partnered with fifteen local San Diego boutiques to hold a month long campaign called The Conscious Co-op. This campaign is a collective of artists, fashion designers, sexual assault survivors and retailers coming together to raise awareness and inspire change. By creatively sharing real stories, we open channels for healing and prevent future acts of sexual violence.

Jeans 4 Justice & FeeLit Artist – Jonathan

Local designers & artists use jeans donated by the San Diego stores as a canvas to transform survivor stories into one of-a-kind pieces of wearable art that will be displayed at participating boutiques during the whole month of April.

Markalan - Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Markalan moved to Pacific Beach in 1994. During his first four years in San Diego, he worked as a photographer for the United States Navy. Over the past decade, he's been behind the bar or turntables in many of San Diego's nightclubs, and venues. He's shared his musical selections with Southern & Baja California, and the Mayan Riviera. During these years, he could be found exchanging his time for vinyl at Groove Records and Siesta Records. 

He often worked for trade, to support his vinyl addiction. He currently owns over 8,000 records. "Listening to my father's albums is when it all began. Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
