Clothesline Project Display: Sexual Assault Awareness Month (4/8)

clothesline projectOn Wednesday, April 8th on the Commons Main Street AND the RAC from 10-4pm, the Women’s Center will be displaying the Clothesline Project in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This display includes t-shirts with messages from UMBC community members over the years related to their experiences of sexual assault or relationship violence. This can be a powerful experience for passersby.

The display in the RAC will be part of the Retriever Heath and Wellness Expo.

Opportunities to contribute a t-shirt to the Project will be available in the Women’s Center prior to the 8th. For more information on dates and times, visit the Women’s Center’s myUMBC group page.

The UMBC student community is invited to join the Women’s Center staff for a workshop from 12-1pm on the same day on how to support survivors of sexual violence and work together as a community to cultivate a survivor-responsive campus. For more details on this workshop, visit the myUMBC event page.
