The Xavier Clothesline Project
Join us on Tuesday, April 23rd for the Clothesline Project!
Clocktower Lounge: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The Clothesline Project is a national project. It serves as a visual depiction for survivors of sexual/gender violence, bearing witness to this epidemic in our communities. The project consists of color-coded shirts created by survivors and/or significant others who have directly and personally experienced the effects of sexual violence.
Established in 1990 by the Cape Cod Women’s Agenda in Hyannis, MA the Clothesline Project has four stated goals:
- To bear witness to survivors and to “remember” those who have been murdered as a result of crimes of sexual/ gender violence.
- To help with the healing process for those who have directly and personally been affected by crimes of sexual/gender violence.
- To educate, document, and raise society’s awareness of the extent of the problem of sexual/gender violence.
- To provide a nationwide network of support, encouragement, and information for other communities starting their own Clothesline Project
