Clothesline Project at USF | Thursday 10/21 | 10:30-1:30pm | MSC Lawn
The National Clothesline Project was developed in the 1990s as a means for survivors to publicly share a message about their experiences that didn’t reveal their identities. These messages were displayed in the way that laundry has historically been displayed: on a clothesline. As a part of Relationship Violence Awareness Month, we will be creating our own Clothesline Project here at USF, dedicated to honoring survivors of all forms of relationship violence. Drop by the MSC Lawn to contribute to the display by decorating a t-shirt however you please, with either your own experiences or inspirational, healing messages for survivors. Your shirt can be decorated with empowering and supportive statements, words, or images. If you would like to participate virtually, you can decorate a t-shirt graphic and upload your submission here.
