The Clothesline Project @ Wayne State

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.

Free Being Me

This event is to encourage the community to take action to end abuse and provide options and resources to alert survivors. It will center around the Clothesline Project display, allowing women and men who have been affected by domestic/sexual violence to express themselves by writing and decorating powerful messages on a color coded t-shirt to display. The event will also include a few speakers, music, Zumba and vendors. A balloon will be released at the end of the event in honor of survivors and victims.

"Walk that Walk against Domestic Violence"

Please join us at Mountain View College in Dallas, Texas as we take a stand against domestic violence and remember the names of those lost.
