Clothesline Project Shines Light on Sexual Violence

 

The presence of sexual violence on college campuses is a growing issue that demands visibility, education, discussion, and action. Through The Clothesline Project, IU Health Center’s Sexual Assault Crisis Service support team invites students, staff, faculty, and community members to break the silence.

As part of IU’s Culture of Care Week, survivors and allies are asked to tell their stories on t-shirts using words, artwork, and/or decorations.

T-shirt making opportunities:

  • Wednesday, March 29, 6:00-8:00 p.m., La Casa, Latino Cultural Center
  • Friday, March 31, 1:00-4:00 p.m., La Casa, Latino Cultural Center
  • Monday, April 3, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., IMU Wellness Center, Mezzanine Level, Room M005
  • Monday, April 3, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., LGBTQ+ Cultural Center
  • Tuesday, April 4, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., LGBTQ+ Cultural Center

Shirts will be displayed on the IU Health Center’s front lawn Wednesday, April 5 to Friday, April 7 from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. A closing ceremony will occur at noon on Friday.

“The Clothesline Project aims to shine a light on the prevalence of sexual violence, and to pay homage to victims and survivors,” said Ann Skirvin, a LMHC at IU Health Center’s Sexual Assault Crisis Service. “It focuses on giving power back to those who have experienced violence, educating others campus-wide and breaking the silence surrounding sexual violence.”

Break the silence, end the violence.
