As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, the Gender Violence Education and Support Services Office will be holding the Clothesline Project on the DU campus.
What is the Clothesline Project?
The Clothesline Project is a program that helps address the issue of violence, especially sexual assault and domestic violence. It is a vehicle for survivors, family, and friends affected by gender violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. The shirts are hung on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence in our community.
Why should you participate in a Clothesline Project event?
Partaking in a Clothesline project event is important for a number of reasons:
·It becomes a healing tool for anyone who makes a shirt
·It allows those who are still suffering in silence to understand that they are not alone.
·It acts as an educational tool for those who come to view the Clothesline
