Come create a shirt for the Clothesline Project, a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. The purpose of the project is to bear witness to the survivors as well as the victims of the war against women, to help with the healing process for people who have lost a loved one or are survivors of this violence, and to educate, document, and raise awareness about the extent of the problem of violence against women. Shirts will be displayed in the UGL during October in commemoration of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. COSW will provide T-shirts and art supplies.
"Walk that Walk against Domestic Violence" is a fashion show with a twist. Our aim is to bring a serious issue to the forefront, educate the masses, and share resources for those who need assistance.
