The Clothesline Project

April 16, 2019 9:00 am

The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular woman's experience.

This year's Clothesline Project (CLP) is taking place April 16 and 17 in the Student Union Ballroom. On April 16 the CLP display will be open from 9 am until 9 pm and on the 17th from 9 am until 5 pm.

The purpose of the CLP is:

1. To bear witness to the survivors as well as the victims of the war against women.

2. To help with the healing process for people who have lost a loved one or are survivors of this violence.

3. To educate, document, and raise society's awareness of the extent of the problem of violence against women.

4. To provide a nationwide network of support, encouragement and information for other communities starting their own Clothesline Projects.

Please consider stopping by to bear witness and learn more about the prevalence of violence against women in our society. Additionally, if you would like to volunteer at the event, please contact Malaika Knight or Wanda Jackson. Contact information is below
