The Clothesline Project 2018

Thank you to all who participated in the 2018 Clothesline Project! Stay tuned for Fall 2019 when the Clothesline Project returns to campus. If you're interested in volunteering, please contact


This fall, the Women's and Gender Studies Program will be continuing the tradition of bringing The Clothesline Project to UNI, taking place in October in honor of Relationship Violence Awareness Month. The Clothesline Project is an interactive event that raises awareness for violence against women, the LGBTQ* community, and other marginalized populations. Members of the campus community who have been affected by violence, be it first-hand or otherwise, are invited to decorate a t-shirt with their thoughts, feelings, and supportive messages surrounding the topic of relationship violence or sexual assault. These shirts will then be hung on a clothesline for all to see, which we call "bearing witness" to the issue.
