The UNI Women's and Gender Studies Program in partnership with the Center for Violence Prevention will be participating in the Clothesline Project in honor of Relationship Violence Awareness Month. The Clothesline Project is a program that raises awareness for violence against women, the LGBTQ* community, and other marginalized populations. People 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 subject. These shirts will then be hung on a clothesline for all to see.
This October, please come to decorate a shirt and bear witness to the issue of violence against women. If you are interested in volunteering for this event or want to know more information, please contact Finn Blaho at firstname.lastname@example.org.
