The Clothesline Project 2018

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.
This October, please come decorate a shirt and bear witness to the issue of relationship violence and sexual assault. If you are interested in volunteering for this event or want to know more information, please contact Sara Naughton at
