The Clothesline Project

Southwest Iowa Families, Inc. invites the community for a Clothesline Display at the Page County Courthouse Lawn. The Clothesline Project originally started in 1990 due to increased awareness of domestic violence against women. Around this period, 51,000 women were killed by an intimate partner. Today, the project still continues, and T-shirts from women and children are displayed throughout the nation to promote awareness to individuals and the community of the options and resources available to victims. 

Domestic Violence Awareness Month Vigil

The Hopevale Church invites the community to attend an event showcasing the tradition of art as a voice for domestic violence survivors. The church lobby will be transformed into an art gallery featuring “The Shoe Exhibit.” Guests will be able to see how art promotes healing for victims of violence. There will be a vigil honoring Saginaw County's homicide victims of domestic violence and a balloon release as a symbol of lost souls. One community member will be honored for their outstanding work while helping victims and for raising awareness about what the community can do to help.
