13th annual Clothesline Project is Oct. 8-12


October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Hours are Monday through Thursday, Oct. 8-11, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, Oct. 12, 8 a.m. to noon at the Memorial Union Ballroom

"Take Back the Night Rally" is Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom. Two survivors will share their personal stories of how they have been affected by violence. Take Back the Night is a rally, held in conjunction with the Clothesline Project, promoting public awareness of interpersonal violence. Why? To show that our campus and community will not stand for violence against women, children and families.

The Clothesline Project is a visual display of T-shirts bearing witness to the effects of violence in our society. Each shirt represents a particular adult or child’s experience, decorated by the survivor or by a family member or friend. This is sponsored by Women’s Center, North Dakota Council on Abused Women’s Services, and Community Violence Intervention Center, a United Way participating agency.-- Patty McIntyre, Program Associate, Womens Center, undwomenscenter@und.nodak.edu, 777-4302.
