The Clothesline Project, a display which has been presented nationally to increase awareness of domestic violence, will be on view October 21-25 at Tunxis in the Administration Building hallway to commemorate National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
T-shirts on the line are hand-decorated by survivors with their sentiments and messages, as well as by friends and families of survivors and victims, who have felt the impact of violence.
The Clothesline Project presents itself as the first international movement of its kind, providing a medium for educating the public about the magnitude of the problem of violence against women, while promoting healing and social change.
The display is on loan from the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence. For those who would like to decorate a shirt to donate to the permanent collection, please bring it to faculty office # 36.
