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 survivor's experience.

Clothesline Project: T-shirt Making

  • When:
    1. 4/18 1-3pm
    2. 4/25 Noon-2pm
  • Where: Library Room 204

We invite you to create your own (free) t-shirt at our annual Clothesline Project! 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 t-shirts 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.

  • When:April 26th and 27th
  • Where: Lower CC Mall

The Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance and QRC will present a display for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Students will have the opportunity to write about what they do on a daily basis to protect themselves from sexual assault. The purpose of this display is to shed light on the unconscious and conscious behaviors we engage in to shield ourselves from being assaulted.

We will also be playing a video that illustrates the importance of consent using a "cup of tea" analogy. There will be free tea and cookies.
