The Clothesline Project is coming to the University of Rochester this April.

The Clothesline Project is a nationwide event that displays t-shirts designed by those affected by any form of sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, sexual harassment, or abuse perceived on race, sexual orientation, and/or disability. The presence of sexual violence on college campuses is a growing issue that demands visibility, education, discussion, and action. We invite students, staff, faculty, and community members to Break The Silence.

The mission of The Clothesline Project is to educate students and the community that violence is a problem everywhere, help is available, there is hope and a path to healing. As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, survivors and allies are asked to tell their stories on t-shirts using words, artwork, and/or decorations. Included is the flier with the multiple dates available to create t-shirts. Please post or advertise as you see fit to help us spread awareness about this amazing program.

Over 50 t-shirts will then be displayed outside of Goergen Athletic Center through the trees from Tuesday, April 3rd – Thursday April 5th. If any other groups are interested in Co-Sponsoring or supporting this program, please reach out to Emmy LoBrutto of RESTORE: [email protected]
