Clothesline Project!

  • When: April 14, 12pm-2pm, April 15, 12pm-2pm
  • Where: In the back of the cafeteria near the WRC CC268

We invite you to create your own (free) t-shirt at our annual Clothesline Project! The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with graphic messages and illustrations that have been designed by survivors of sexual, domestic, and/or gender-based violence. The purpose of this project is to increase awareness about the impact of violence, to celebrate the strength of survivors, and to break the silence that often surrounds a survivors experience. By attending this event, you will have the opportunity to create your own t-shirt to represent your personal experience with sexual assault and/or domestic violence; t-shirts can also be made in honor of a loved one. The tshirts will then be displayed in the hallway between the CC building and the PAC. This project may bring up a variety of emotions; we will have a counselor attend both of our event dates in order to provide staff and students with emotional support.

Forward Together staffs and leads Strong Families, a national initiative to change the way people think, feel and act in support of families of all kinds. Strong Families is building a movement to transform societal attitudes and perceptions to catch up with the reality of the changing face of American families – and ultimately win long-term policy change – so that all families have the rights, recognition and resources they need to thrive. Strong Families campaigns seek to interrupt the dominant and dated cultural values and policies that stigmatize our families, and replace them with values and policies that respect and recognize them. Race, class and gender are at the center of all of our work. Find out about the ground breaking work of Forward Together/Strong Families!
