Clothesline project honors survivors and remembers those who were killed
The Counseling Department, Campus Life & Leadership Office, and the Re-entry Office are once again co-sponsoring the Clothesline Project this week, May 2–6.
The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with messages and illustrations that have been designed by women survivors of violence or by someone who loves a woman who has been killed. The purpose of the project is to increase awareness of the impact of violence against women, to celebrate a woman's strength to survive, and to provide another avenue for her to courageously break the silence that often surrounds her experience. This is a national project that Longview has participated in for the past six years.
Anyone - employee or student - may make a t-shirt. T-shirts and paint supplies are located in the Re-entry Center (Campus Center 257). The shirts will be hung on the clotheslines located outside between the Campus Center and Science and Technology buildings. Informational tables are also located in the Campus Center, Science and Technology, Business, and Liberal Arts buildings, and the Library.
